Mwambui's story

Mwambui has had her first Kiva loan, which she was able to repay without challenges. She invested the whole of the previous loan into the tailoring business. Now, she wants to diversify her earnings by starting a charcoal business. She seeks a loan that she will use to buy 200 bags of charcoal. The extra income that she will raise from the charcoal business, she will invest in the tailoring business. She hopes that in the next five years she will be able to buy her own vehicle, which would ease the challenge of high fuel and transportation costs.
