Elizabeth's story

Elizabeth is 30 years old and married with three children. She operates a hotel and she and her husband both provide for the family's upkeep. She enjoys her work because it gives her constant income and it has also provided employment to other people. She prepares mostly fish, ugali and local vegetables (managu) which is a staple dish in the region. She provides food to the local college students and casual employees.

Her business has grown such that the clients have to wait for the utensils to be washed so that they can be served. This has caused many of them to complain and threaten to move to other places. With this loan, Elizabeth will buy more cutlery that will adequately serve her growing clientele. This will indeed grow her business. She will use the profit to repay her loan, boost her business and provide for her family. Her dream is to own a a chain of hotels that will provide employment to many people and also enable her to provide the best education for her children.
