Ashura's Maendeleo Group's story

Ashura is 35-years-old and is married, with 2 children, ages 12 and 17. She and her husband also take care of three other people, ages 60, 25 and 17.

Ashura owns a small grocery store, which she started in 2005. Everyday she works from 6am to 6pm at her business and can earn a monthly profit of about $250 from her sales.
