Raising two children while running a business is a challenge, but Jamillah has been doing just that since she began selling stoves in 2002. Now, her two children are ages nine and fourteen, and she hopes to earn enough from her business to pay for their school fees.
Why she was selected for the program: Jamillah is a wonderful example of the entrepreneurial spirit, and she's run her business with determination for years. Now, she has the opportunity to increase her sales significantly by receiving training in marketing, finance, and product assembly.
Her business goal: Jamillah's business is well-positioned to grow, but she needs access to a loan in order to purchase more raw materials. Within the next six months, she hopes to access the loan, grow her business, and successfully pay for her children to go to school.
