Hellen is 27 years old, married to Wycliffe, and she supports four members of her family.
She runs a sukuma wiki (collard greens) business in Chepkumia, served by Kenya Agency for Development of Enterprise and Technology's Kapsabet office. This has been her income-generating business for the last three years. The business generates an average monthly income of KES 5,000.
Hellen plans to use the amount borrowed, KES 20,000, to buy sukuma wiki to sell. She plans to reinvest the anticipated profits into the business.
