Ega is a married woman and has been blessed with five children. She lives at her own house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees for her children.
Ega operates a meat goat-selling business, selling from home to neighbours and passersby, her potential customers. She faces a major challenge of seasonality in her business.
With the KES 50,000 loan that she is requesting, she wants to purchase seven goats for resale to her customers. In this way, she can get more profit to help her boost the living standards of her family.
