Shamsa's story

Shamsa is 36 years old and has four children, all of whom are schooling. She is from Msambweni, a coastal town in Kenya. She is the owner of a store that sells various types of clothing. The store is in a nearby trading center, and she has worked there for the past five years. She is a very hard-working person who, thanks to her efforts, is getting ahead and helping her family, day by day. She tells us that things are very difficult, but in spite of that, she makes an effort to move forward. The major challenge she faces is stiff competition from other sellers of clothing, but because of her good relationships with customers she has been able to overcome that. She has been able to gain a wide range of customers, therefore she needs to expand her business to satisfy her customers' needs and buy different clothes bundles.
