Juliana, 25, is married and has two young children. She lives with her family in the municipality of Mombasa. Four years ago, Juliana decided to start selling omena (dry fish). She was motivated to start this business in order to contribute towards her home and attain economic independence. She sells at the market.
Juliana has requested a 50,000 KES loan to buy more stock of fish to sell. She mentions that she’s very grateful for the financial support provided, because she will be able to improve her income, gradually grow in the business, and continue supporting her family.
