Due to financial constraints, Fatuma aimed to improve her variety store to generate sufficient income. She is 34 years old and has three school-age children. She and her husband had planned to upgrade their status of living in order to educate their children and give them a better life. In this regard, Fatuma is asking for additional capital of 20,000 KES to buy additional stocks of soft drinks, beverages, maize flour, cooking fat, soaps, and seasonings to sell. She believes that this loan will enable her to improve the business and hopes that they will become successful in the future.
