Beatrice, a 42-year-old mother of four children, is married to Michael. They all live in Nakuru town, where she works in the timber selling business. Having been in the business for more than 10 years, she says it has been profitable and it has enabled her to provide for the needs of her family.

This is her first loan term, and she plans to use the loan amount to buy more stock of timber for sale. This will enable her to meet the high demand for timber from her customers, who include carpenters and people in the construction business. She anticipates generating more income, with which she will pay school fees for her children.

Beatrice hopes to grow her business, make more income, and be able to buy a plot of land and build rental houses.
