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

For the past 10 years, she has operated a retail business selling spare parts to bicycle operators. She also operates a clothes selling business, which contributes to her other source of income. She faces a major challenge with the high cost of transportation in her business. She dreams of expanding her shop to a hardware shop in the future.
