Mwanamisi's story

Mwanamisi is 24 years old, married, and has four children. They live in a neighborhood in the town of Msambweni. She has a store where she sells food products (rice, beans, flour, cornmeal, sugar, soft drinks, and bread), as well as medicines and other grocery products. She started this business with money given by her husband and later used the profits to increase her inventory.

Mwanamisi currently has an established customer base, which allows her to increase her sales and experience more demand for the products she offers. At the moment, she is requesting her first loan so that she can invest in the purchase of food products, medicines, and grocery products. Her dream is to increase her sales and her earnings so that she can grow financially, support her children’s education, and achieve a stable business.
