Stella's Maendeleo Group's story

Stella is a single woman with 4 children, ages 22, 13, 8, and 2 and a half years old. She also takes care of 3 other people, ages 50, 40, and 25 years old. Stella owns a small grocery store, which she started in 1997. Every day, she works from 6am to 5pm at her business and can earn a monthly profit of about $70 from her sales.
