Chari is a single married mother of two school-going children. She owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees. She has operated a retail shop business for the past five years, selling household consumables like wheat flour and maize flour from home to her neighbours. She faces the challenge of competition in her business, and she dreams of expanding to a wholesale shop in the future.
With this 50,000 Kenyan shilling loan, she wants to purchase bundles of wheat flour, maize flour and cooking oil to sell.
