Bahati's story

Bahati is a married woman with five children. Four of the children attend school and one is still too young for school. She lives in a rental house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food for the family.

For the past 10 years, she has operated a vegetable stall business, selling at retail to her neighbors and passersby. In addition, she sells dried fish and cereals, which adds another source of livelihood. She faces a major challenge of seasonality in her business. Bahati dreams of becoming a cereals supplier in the future.

With the KSHS 40,000, she wants to purchase building materials, cement and sand and pay labor to construct her stall. She decided to join to access loans to boost her business.
