Dorris is 36 years old. She is married and has four children. She lives in Voi and makes a living by selling flat breads. She makes her flat breads from her home, in the kitchen, and later sells them door-to-door. She says that as this way of selling is cumbersome, she wants to establish a small stall where she can sell from.
She is asking for the loan to buy all the materials she needs for making the stand. She estimates that this loan will help her a lot because she will be able to increase her sales by having a place from which to sell to her customers. Her future plans are to increase the volume of her production, and by making and selling additional products like dumplings and other fast foods. Her immediate goal is to expand her business.
