Fatuma is a married woman with four children living in Tiribe-Kenya.
After realizing that the wages she used to earn as a casual laborer could not help her provide the basics to her family, she decided to venture into a charcoal selling business four years ago. She has challenges of inadequate capital and customers who do not pay on time.
Like most good mothers, she dreams of educating her children to attain degrees, as a minimum qualification.
Fatuma's plan is to venture into solar trade, since it is not harmful to the environment.
Fatuma intends to use the loan to buy charcoal to sell.
