Grace, age 35, is a merchant who sells clothes. She is a widow, and lives with her three children. Grace began selling in the marketplace using her savings from her farming business. Gradually she was able to increase her business and now she offers her products throughout the district.
Grace travels to Mombasa town and brings back articles of clothing, which allows her to continue offering good prices. The articles of clothing that she sells mostly are those for women and children such as blouses, t-shirts, shorts, sweatshirts, and lingerie. She is requesting assistance so that she can buy articles of clothing that are in season. Grace wants to be well-stocked with these items so that she can offer them to her customers.
