Fatuma is 49 years old and widowed. She is a mother to her four children, three of whom are adults, while one is still in school. Fatuma struggles to see that her last born acquires a good education.
With the 20,000 KES, Fatuma will be able to buy more clothing and increase the inventory in her store. She basically sells khangas (wraps of traditional cloth), and has done this for two years. She wishes to increase her inventory in order to sell more and be able to save.
She dreams of her business growing and allowing her, in time, to save enough to have her own boutique.
