Subira is a married mother of five school going children. She owns a house that has electricity and piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are school fees and food for the family.
Subira has operated a cereals shop business at the market for the past eight years, selling to passersby and neighbours. She cited seasonality as her major challenge in the business.
With the KES 50,000 she wants to purchase sacks of maize, beans, rice, green grams, ground nuts and lentils. Her dream is to see her children get a better education and become important people in the society.
