A loan of $500 helped to purchase sacks of charcoal for resale.


Mwanaharusi's story

Mwanaharusi is married to a businessman and together they have six children, all of whom attend school. They live in their own house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.

For the past three years, Mwanaharusi 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.

Mwanaharusi is requesting a 40,000 Kenyan shilling loan to purchase sacks of charcoal for resale. She dreams of expanding to a wholesale shop in the near future.
