Jumwa is a married woman. She has three school-going children. She lives in a rental house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.
Jumwa has operated a vegetable-stall business for the last two years, selling from home to her neighbors and passersby. She faces a challenge of stiff competition from other vegetable operators in her business.
With the 10,000 Kenyan shillings, she wants to purchase sacks of tomatoes, potatoes, fruits and green vegetables for resale.
