Florence has 7 children, aged between 20 and 39 years old. She lives in Samburu, Kenya. She generates her own income by selling fruits and vegetables in her stall.

She started her business approximately 12 years ago. As a mother, head of the household, her biggest challenge is to provide for and meet the needs of her two children. They are still under her care until they achieve their dream of becoming successful people. Her children are the impetus for her to continually work.

Florence's joy and dynamism help her to succeed in her business, but she needs to increase her business capital to achieve her goal of generating more income. This is why she is requesting her 1st Kiva loan with Yehu Microfinance Trust. She will buy sacks of fruits and fresh vegetables for resale with the loan funds. She needs disposable income to stock up on more products and to offer her clients more selection. This will result in the success of her investment and will be the advancement she needs to be able to achieve her dreams in the future.
