Fatuma is from Likoni and is single. She describes herself as a person who wants to work in order to get ahead and to be able to support her four children.
She is the owner of a food store that sells cooked beans, rice and chapati (flat bread). It is located in a very good spot, and she has customers that always buy food from her. In this way, she is able to move ahead.
Her dream is to build areas for lodging, since many traveling vendors come to her business; she sees a lot of potential in this goal.
She is requesting a loan in order to buy wheat flour, maize flour, rice and cooking fat so that she can stock her food store. In this way, she will continue providing good service to her customers.
