Margret is married and has eight children, all of whom attend school. She owns a house that has electricity but not piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.
For the past ten years she has owned a food stall business for neighbours and town dwellers. She faces the major challenge of fluctuations in her number of clients, hence perishable goods leading to losses.
With the 30,000 KES she wants to purchase stock of goods like sugar, rice, maize and wheat flour, and cooking fat oil. She dreams of expanding to a modern café in the business.
