Darmaris lives in the community of Msambweni with her husband and four children aged from 20 to 35 years. She operates a food selling business, which has been operational for the past six years. She has profited from her extensive knowledge in the field, maintaining the stability of her business. This is reflected in the considerable number of steady clients she has. Darmaris' goal is to have her own store space, and this is why she plans on maintaining her business to its ideal and to increase her working capital.

This is the first loan she has had with Yehu Microfinance Trust (Kiva Field Partner). Darmaris will purchase food products in large quantities, such as wheat flour, maize flour, sugar, and cooking fat oil. There is a projected increase in the price of these products and she wants to acquire them before this happens. Darmaris will also purchase other food products, grocery products, and soft drinks. She is very concerned with keeping her business well stocked with what her clients require.
