Consolata's story

Consolata M. is a single lady with two children aged five and two. Her business is located at the Nairobi Central Business District where she sells clothes to the local people. She has been doing this for six years. She says that this business is profitable and the major challenge she has is that fashion is seasonal and some designs go out of style before she has sold them. Then she takes losses or her capital becomes locked up due to slow stock movement. However she works very hard to keep her business doing well. She is using her loan of Kes 50,000 to buy more clothes to boost her business during this festive season. She hopes to grow her business and open more stalls in Nairobi since the target market is huge. She also hopes to gain financial stability and give her children a good education to the university level. She describes herself as generous, kind and lovable.
