Malaina Group's story

Manes is 36 years old and a widow. She has two children who rely on her financially. She owns a grocery shop. She started the business to be self-dependent. Two of her family members work with her in the business.

Manes will use her share of the loan to buy more groceries to sell, including sugar, cooking oil, bread, soap, matches and candles. The proceeds from the sales will enable her to pay for her children's school fees.

Manes plans to open other small businesses and purchase livestock in the future.
