Eunice is a stove entrepreneur and the mom of two boys, ages 17 and 15. She's been running her business for 13 years. If she acquires the funding and training necessary to grow her business, she says, "I would feel more confident to tackle other challenges in life and also tackle the challenges in business like feeling confident to go to new markets and feel just happy and confident about my business."
Why she was selected for the program: Eunice currently employs two people and sells thirty-six stoves each month. Her business has a lot of potential, and she's excited to see how it can grow!
Her business goal: Eunice hopes to increase her sales to 100 stoves each month, but she needs access to capital in order to do so. "I need capital to generally expand my business, that is get more materials, add more labor to make more stoves, to serve a bigger market."
