Bintimasud, 32, lives in Msambweni, Kenya and has a family business preparing fried food and fast food. Her business was born five years ago after she divorced her husband and became an independent woman.

Now she is applying for her first Kiva loan, because she needs to grow the business and to do that she needs to find suppliers from whom she can buy in volume and on a cash basis, as they offer a better price. This is the reason for this Kiva loan, the fifth loan that she has taken from Yehu Microfinance Trust. She will use this loan to buy raw materials such as cooking oil and cereals. Her investment will be successful because she will get discounts that will increase her profits right away, and also will benefit her customers. Her goal for the future is to have her own place where she can operate a big restaurant, offering a variety of dishes that are specialties of the region.
