Mwanaisha sells clothing door-to-door to earn a living. Her husband, a city taxi driver, helped her get started in her business by giving her a small amount of savings as start-up capital. They live in Tiribe, Mombasa, with their four children, all of whom are enrolled in school. Their combined income enables them to pay for the education of their children and to cover household necessities.
Mwanaisha has developed an established, regular clientele in her business. She herself is a very responsible person who is motivated by the desire to achieve.
Mwanaisha is seeking a loan in order to buy a variety of clothing items to offer for sale, such as t-shirts, blouses, and pants. This will allow the business to be better-stocked and to generate a higher income.
