Mwatime has been engaged in coconut selling for 10 years. She is a 43-year-old married woman and has five children. She started her business with very little capital; thanks to her efforts and determination, she can now buy coconuts in large quantity. She sells them door-to-door.

She wants to increase her business and have more income from it so that she can open a retail shop. Mwatime is asking for 30,000 KES to buy more sacks of coconuts for sell.
