Alima's story

Alima is married and has seven children, all of whom attend school. She owns a house that has electricity but not piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees. For the past seven years, she has owned a food stall business, where she sells to neighbours and town dwellers. She faces a major challenge of fluctuations in number of clients, thus allowing perishable goods to go bad, leading to losses. With the 50,000 KES she wants to purchase stock of goods like sugar, rice, maize and wheat flour, and cooking fat for food preparation. She dreams of expanding to a modern café with her business.
