This is 45-year-old Halima. She is married and has five children.

In 2011, she established her charcoal business. She began her business because she wanted to assist her husband in providing for the home. Working 7 days a week and 10 hours a day, she earns about KES 10,000 as profit every month from this business.

Halima now requires a loan in order to buy a large stock of charcoal and increase her profit. She would like a loan in the amount of KES 40,000.

In the future, she plans to own a charcoal depot. She thanks you for your support.
