She spends her working hours selling tea and pineapples and needs extra support.I am especially drawn to her story (for obvious reasons).  But as a female business owner in Kenya, her access to opportunities and funding is very limited, so we chose to believe in her dream this month.  (And the dreams of 25 others!)
