Kanga, 41, is married to Mwalimu. They have two children and they live in downtown Samburu.

Kanga has had a boutique for more than ten years in a strategically located spot in the village of Samburu. She sells assorted articles of clothing, such as shirts, t-shirts, sandals and belts, for cash and on credit. Thanks to her sacrifice she’s getting ahead and also helping her husband with everyday expenses.

She’s asking for the loan to increase her stock of clothing, because sales always increase starting mid-year, and she wants to be prepared in the best way possible to provide her customers with quality and variety of clothes.
