Laura is 35 years old. She is married to Joseph, and together God has blessed them with three children who are all below the age of 18 years. She is running a green grocery.

She has been in the business for 14 years, earning an average income from the business. However, she has applied for the first loan from VisionFund Kenya to enable her buy more stock of tomatoes, onions, potatoes and vegetables.
