Deborah is 27 years old and married, but she is not yet blessed with any child. She is very responsible and lives with her husband in the coastal region of Kenya. Deborah has a posho mill (cereal grain grinding machine). In addition, she also sells dried maize. She says that some of her customers who buy her dried maize need the services of her posho mill, because they at times require flour out of the maize they purchase. She has had her business for two years. It’s gone well and is very well-known.

She is asking for a loan so that she can buy more sacks of maize to resell. She sells in quantity and in small amounts, and the maize bought with the loan will allow her to count on a large number of sales. Deborah wants to improve her earnings so that she can continue helping her husband with the household expenses.
