Baina is a hard-working married woman. She operates a general store selling charcoal. She and her husband are the responsible parents of three children, and her store is the only source of income for the family.

At present, the stock of her business is almost depleted. For this reason, she has requested a loan from Kiva partner Yehu Microfinance, which she will use to purchase sacks of charcoal for the store. This investment will help her to continue her small business and to satisfy the demands of her clients.
