Lilian
Lilian is a married woman. She has three children with ages ranging from 4 years to 12 years. She describes herself to be a focused woman. She operates a retail business where she sells clothes. Her business is located within a busy urban area and her primary customers are local residents from the environment. She describes her biggest business challenge to be insufficient funds for improving her business.

Lilian will use the Kes 8,700 loan to buy a water tank which will be used by her family on household chores. Her business goal is to buy more stock of clothes to sell within 5 years. She hopes that in the future, she will expand her business. This is her third loan with SMEP DTM, having repaid successfully a previous loan of Kes 70,000.

Additional Information

More information about this loan

This loan is a part of SMEP's loan program to promote clean drinking water in partnership with Water.org. Called WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene), this program offers three loan products:

1)      Loans designed to increase access to water. This includes financing for water tanks, water connections, water kiosks, pumps, filters, dispensers and catchment systems.

2)      Loans for sanitation improvements. This includes financing for the construction of bathrooms, toilets, septic tanks, soak pits, pit latrines, disposal units and incinerators.

3)      Loans for the drilling and construction of boreholes, shallow wells and water towers. This also includes the establishment and improvement of water treatment plants and chemicals.

WASH loan products carry greater risk than typical Kiva loans because they are used to fund non-income generating assets (in most cases), and therefore will need to be repaid with other sources of income. This income may already be contingent on other loans held by loan recipients.
