Mwanasiti is married and has seven children, all of whom attend school. She owns a house that has electricity, but not piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.
For the past ten years, Mwanasiti has owned a food stall business, where neighbors and town-dwellers are her customers. She faces a major challenge in the fluctuation in the number of clients, hence, unsold perishable goods lead to losses.
With the KES 50,000 loan, Mwanasiti wants to purchase stocks of goods, like sugar, rice, maize, wheat flour, and cooking fat. She dreams of expanding her business to a modern café.
