Dorothy is a fish vendor. She has operated her fish sales business for over 10 years, selling her wares from her home to restaurant operators and passers-by. She cites seasonality and perishability as her primary business challenges, which can lead to losses.

Dorothy and her husband have been blessed with three children, all of whom attend school. The family lives in a house that they own. It has neither electricity nor piped water.

With the Kshs 40,000 loan she has requested, Dorothy would like to purchase bundles of fish to offer for sale. She dreams of expanding her business and establishing another business in the near future.
