Prossy is a 35-year-old, single mother. She has three children, ages 3, 7, and 15. The older two go to school.

She rented a small shop in the middle of the trading center and she operates a cosmetics shop. She chose this place near her home to help her reduce transport costs since she has so many other expenses to cater to.

She started this business after her husband had abandoned her and married another woman. As a single mother, Prossy has to strive to see that her children get all the basic needs met. Her customers trust her cosmetics because they are genuine.

Prossy needs a loan to purchase more stock to boost up her business. As a single parent, Prossy faces the challenge of providing the best basic needs for her children. For the business, lack of enough capital and stiff competition from cheap cosmetics sellers are the major challenges that are hindering her progress.
