Jasiri Group's story

Swaumu, who is in her late 20s, is married and has two children. One of them is going to school and the other is very young.

She has been selling charcoal for two years now. She works from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

Her dream is to one day build her own house.
