Gertrude's story

Gertrude is widow with one dependent and has been in the same business for a period of 10 years.

She has been able to sustain her business due to increased usage of charcoal and matooke by the city people, and a constant supply from villages. She has been able to feed her family and the dependents from the same business.

Her major challenge is the increasing prices of charcoal and rental fees where she operates in the city.

The client is shown seated at her business, and standing is the credit officer.
