A loan of $975 helps working capital to buy more new clothes and shoes to sell.

Lydia Wairimu's story

Lydia is 27 years old and is married to Paul. They are blessed with one son and they support one another to raise the family. Her husband is a fruit seller and he is very supportive.

Lydia sells new clothes and shoes and she likes her business very much. Interacting with her clients is what she likes most as she gets to understand their needs better. Demand for clothes has been increasing and she is having a challenge to support all their needs. With this loan, she will buy new clothes and shoes and grow her boutique business. This is her fourth loan cycle and she is known to pay well in time.

Her dream is to buy a vehicle to ease her transport costs while restocking.

This loan is special because:

It gives financial access to low income micro-entrepreneurs.
