Elizabeth is 40 years old, a single mother of four children. She runs a retail shop, and this has been her income-generating business for the last six years. She receives an average monthly income of KES 40,000. She has taken out a loan of KES 30,000 to buy more stock for her retail shop, including plastic containers, brooms, face towels, sugar, wheat flour and tea leaves. She anticipates receiving increased profits, which she will use to expand her business by adding more items to meet client demand. Elizabeth hopes and dreams of improving her living standards and being financially stable; she also wants to save money to enable her to pay college fees for her children, as well as to expand her business to a general goods wholesale shop.
