Wayua, 39, is happily married and lives in the town of Likoni with her husband and three adult children. She’s a very kind, hardworking, enthusiastic person who, together with her husband, focuses all their efforts into moving their family forward and ensuring that their children are educated.
For over ten years, Wayua has been running a retail shop, selling basic consumer goods like breads, sodas, flour, etc.
Wayua is grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to the help provided she will be able to buy larger amounts of merchandise like cooking fat, balers of flour, sacks of sugar, rice, and other fast-selling products so that her business will be better stocked with a wider variety of merchandise to increase sales and income. It will serve much so that in the not-too-distant future she’ll see her children become good professionals and responsible citizens.
