Petronilla is a married woman and has no children. She owns a house, which has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food.

For the past two years, she has operated a clothes-selling business, selling second-hand clothes for both men and women. She cites stiff competition as her major challenge in the business.

Petronilla is requesting to borrow KES 25,000. She will use it to purchase bales of clothes for resale. She dreams of expanding to a wholesale shop, in the near future.
