A loan of $500 helps to buy wheat flour and cooking oil to bake more mandazis and chapatis in order to grow her business.


Abnes Vihenda's story

Abnes is married and is a business lady. Her husband resides in the city center, where he works, and they support one another. She bakes mandazis and makes chapatis for a living, and she likes her business. For many years she has been doing this at a roadside kiosk that her customers frequent.

Demand has recently increased and she is having a challenge in meeting her customer's needs. She will buy wheat flour and cooking oil to grow her business. All her profit will be used to pay back her loan in a short period of time. Her dream is for her family to have a good life.
