Mwanakombo sells traditional clothing items called khangas to earn an income. She has been engaged in this business for six years and has gained valuable experience that keeps the business flourishing. Her customers like her because of her jovial nature and the quality service she offers. She sells door to door and through orders. She and her life companion are blessed with four children and the family lives in the town of Msambweni.
Currently, she has many orders to fulfill. Mwanakombo does not want to disappoint her regular customers, and this is why she wants to make an investment in her business by purchasing bales of khangas to offer for sale. However, she does not have enough capital to invest in a good variety of khangas. For this reason, she is asking for support in the form of a loan.
