Lydia is a 27-year-old, married woman. She has three children. She is a warm woman. She operates a business, where she sells cereals, clothes and plastic items. She has been involved in this business for seven years, and she employs one staff member. Her business is located at a strategic business area, and her primary customers are local residents. She says her biggest business challenge is having problems transporting the cereals.

She will use the KES 12,900 loan to buy a solar lamp. Her business goal is to run a wholesale, general store within five years. She hopes that in the future, she will buy a pickup truck, which would aid her in transporting cereals to her business, where they can be resold.
