Amina is a widow. She lives in her own house that has electricity and piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food.
Amina operates a food-making business, making items such as beans and chapati (flat bread) for sale to passersby and neighbours. She mentioned that her major challenge is the high cost of purchasing food items.
With the Kshs 50,000, Amina wants to purchase food items such as wheat flour, cooking oil, sugar and beans. She dreams of expanding her business to earn more income and of establishing a restaurant in the near future.
