Hawa's story

This woman is named Hawa and she has been selling foodstuffs for six years now. She is 45 years old, divorced, and a mother. Hawa is on her 3rd loan from UIMCEC and wants to take another to be able to purchase a refrigerator to install in her shop, which is a real shop for her business. She begins her day at 8am and closes at 11pm. Hawa is an ambitious woman; she saves regularly to one day build her own house.
