Christine is 31 years old and married with two children, one of whom is in school. For two years, she has been running a hotel business (in Africa, a "hotel" is often a primitive restaurant) where she has employed four people. She previously owned a shop but currently relies partially on her husband’s salary.

She appreciates Faulu Kenya, a Kiva partner, for training her on business record-keeping and customer service. She requested 60,000 Kenyan shillings so as to purchase more groceries to add to her stock and for renovation of the business premises. She hopes to grow her hotel into a restaurant and also construct rooms for accommodation in future. She describes herself as hardworking and visionary.
