Ruth's story

Ruth is widowed with four children, and two of her children go to school. She also takes care of additional family members. She has a business selling charcoal and has been in this business for 20 years selling to all categories of people by retail basis only.

She sells on a retail basis and works seven days out of every week. Her major business challenges include transportation and the rainy season, which makes roads in the villages impassable. She is aspiring to become a wholesaler and also to buy a delivery van to ease in transportation. She resides in her own house and the family has access to electricity and piped water. Her monthly expense includes school fees, paying for utility bills, and medication.
