Mwanasha is 28 years of age, married, and has five children. Two of her children are under school age, and three of them attend school. They are the reason for her hard work. She owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water.
Mwanasha has operated a cafe business, making and selling comestables like rice, tea, beans, and chapati ( flat bread). Her customers are passersby and neighbours. She cited seasonality as a major challenge for her business.
With the KES 30,000 loan, she wants to purchase a stock of goods for use at the cafe, including maize flour, wheat flour, rice and drinks. Her dream is to see her children get better education and become important persons in their society.
