Sikukuu, 35, is a single mother due to widowhood. She takes care of two school-age children in the rural area of Msambweni. She is a dedicated woman who does not fear any challenges. For the past two years, she has been selling fried fish in one of the busy trading centers. She says that she faces the challenge of high competition in the area where she sells. But, thanks to her good services and quality fish -- and above all, her kindness -- she has been able to establish a good client base. Sikukuu wants to make some investments in her business, so she is asking for a loan to buy more stocks of fish and cooking oil. Her aim is to see her business grow.
