Sydney, now 20 years of age, has a boutique business in Emali town, Kenya, where she sells clothes. Her merchandise includes clothes for men, women, and children. She has been in this business for two years and it has been profitable. The income from the business has enabled her to provide for the needs of her child.

This being her first loan, Sydney plans to use the money to buy more stock of clothes for her shop. This will enable her to meet the demands of her customers and thereby generate more income, with which she plans to buy a dairy cow.

Sydney hopes to grow her business, make more income, and buy more dairy cows in the future, as well as build residential houses.
