Maku's story

Maku is married to a businessman. Together they have three children, all of whom attend school. They live in their own home that doesn't have electricity or piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.

For the past three years, she has operated a charcoal business, selling to her neighbors and passersby. She cites theft and the high cost of transportation as her major challenges in the business.

Maku is requesting a loan of 50,000 KES to purchase sacks of charcoal for resale. She dreams of expanding to a wholesale shop in the near future.
