Hiyari, 24, is a mother of two children who are three and seven years old. She is married and lives with her family in the rural part of the outskirts of the town of Msambweni. Three years ago, Hiyari opened a coconut-selling business and she has been running it successfully. She is a woman with many entrepreneurial skills. She has gained much experience and she now knows her customer needs very well. She is happy to feel responsible for the house since she helps her husband with the household expenses. Currently, her stock of coconuts has gone down and she wants to increase it. However, she lacks enough capital to do so. She is, therefore, asking for a loan to buy more pieces of coconut to sell..
