Rose is a married lady with four children for whom she hopes to provide a good education to the university level.

Rose runs a a photocopying services business situated at a hall in the University of Nairobi, where she provides photocopying services to the university students. She says the business is good, but she experiences low business seasons when the campus students leave for vacation. She also owns a beauty salon business, which adds to her income from the photocopying business.

She will use her loan of 50,000 Kenya shillings (KES) to buy salon equipment to grow her salon business, which has a lot of potential, as well as to get ready as we near Christmas, when most customers will need the beauty services. She describes herself as humble and joyful.
