Jane is a married woman with one child who attends school. She lives in a rental house that has electricity and piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are house rent and electricity bills.
Jane operates two businesses: a boda boda (motorcycle taxi) business and a business making natural juices. She has worked in these businesses for over a year. Jane faces the major challenge of traffic regulations on motorcycle business operators. She hopes to construct her own house for her family and later build her own rental houses.
With this 20,000 KES loan, she wants to purchase a new engine for her boda boda and purchase fruits and flavoring for making natural juices. She decided to join Kiva partner, Yehu, because it has a good reputation in the community.
