Caroline lives in Kisauni with her husband. She dreams of a promising future in which she is able to provide her family with the potential for success. Her family is the motivation behind her work of selling lesos (African women's wrap cloth). The business is located in her home and she sells for cash to passersby in her area as well as to neighbors, family members, and friends. They are familiar with the products that Caroline sells and are loyal to her business.

Caroline's goal is to achieve sustainable growth and, in this way, improve her family's income. Her biggest challenge is to build up enough working capital to be able to grow her business. With the loan, she wants to purchase bales of clothes for resale.
