Mwanamisi is a 35-year-old business owner who works selling charcoal. She tells us that she has had this business for three years, previously selling cereals in a store.

Her business is located in a strategic place in a trading centre at Mwambalazi, Kenya, where she has a great number of customers.

Thanks to her work and her business, she has been able to help her family and give them all that they need for a dignified life.

She is requesting the loan to be able to stock her charcoal store with more sacks, as she has a lot of demand, especially this rainy season, and wants to have them in stock to be able to offer them to her customers.

She thanks Yehu and Kiva for the opportunity that she is receiving.
