Kanga is married and has eight children, all of whom attend school. With much hard work and dedication, she was able to open a small store in her home eight years ago. Since then, she has built a wide customer base since hers is the only comparable store in her neighborhood, and she is sure to always keep it well-stocked. It is a sacrifice to get up at dawn each day to go out to the market, where prices are best and food is freshest, in order to buy items to stock her store.

With this business, Kanga has been able to improve her home and to pay for her children's education. She is requesting this loan in order to buy vegetables, fruits, baked goods and other items to stock her store. In the future, she hopes to expand her business.
