Rebeca is married and has four 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 four years, Rebeca has owned a food stall business where neighbours and town dwellers are her customers. She faces the major challenge of fluctuations in the number of clients, hence perishing of goods, leading to losses.
With the KES 35,000, she wants to purchase stock of goods like sugar, rice, maize, wheat flour, cooking fat. She dreams of expanding the business into a modern café.
