The desire for self-improvement is one of Wakati’s most important dreams. She lives with her family in her own house in the coastal region of Kenya.
She has a sewing workshop where she makes all types of clothes: shirts, dresses, skirts and blouses, among other things. She’s been in business for some time now and is very well-known in the area. She sells from home and has many customers who prefer her for the quality of her products, her affordable prices, and above all the excellent service. She’s an active, enterprising woman who is dedicated to her work and who has many goals to reach. She’s working hard to attain a more prosperous future. She feels happy with her business, because she knows she must work in order to rise out of poverty.

Demand has increased in recent weeks so she wants to make a new investment and buy raw materials needed to make the clothes which is why she’s asking Yehu for a loan to buy fabric at wholesale, thread, zippers, etc.
