Susan is single and has been a member of Kiva partner Yehu Microfinance since 2011. She buys and sells coal.

She started her business with a wooden wheelbarrow, which she still owns. But over time she bought other work tools, eventually acquiring an open motorcar for her sales activity and product delivery to customers. The problem was that rainy days posed inconveniences.

She is requesting a loan in order to buy charcoal to fill customer orders.
