Mwenda
Mwenda is 40 years of age, widowed and has six children who attend school, which is the reason for her hard work. She lives in a rental house that neither has electricity nor piped water.

Mwenda has operated a cafe business selling such items as rice, tea, beans and chapati (flat bread) to passersby and neighbors. She cited seasonality as her major challenge.

With the KES 15,000 loan, she wants to purchase maize flour, wheat flour, rice and food ingredients for her business. Her dream is to see her children get a good education and become important people in society.
