Victoria A. K. is thirty years old, married, and has one child aged two. Her business is located at Kakamega. She has been selling such items as detergents, sugar, flour, rice, bread and others for the last two years to the local people. She says that this business is profitable and the major challenge she has is there are so many people doing the same kind of business as hers in the area and so customers are spoilt for choice. However she works very hard to keep her business doing well.

She is using her loan of Kes 20,000 to buy more general items to expand her business. Her husband is a teacher and supports her in the business and they hope to bring up their children in a good environment and provide basic needs for them. She sees her business growing into a supermarket in future. She describes herself as patient and ambitious.
