Celestine is a married woman with 6 children. She describes herself as a motivated person. She operates a retail business where she offers printing services and photocopying of documents. She has been involved in this business for 20 years. She also earns extra income from her rental houses.
Her business is located in a good area, and her primary customers are local residents. She describes her biggest business challenge as insufficient funds. She will use the loan of 50,000 Kenyan shillings (KES) to add stock of printing paper and other stationery. This is her fourth loan with SMEP DTM. She repaid her previous loan of 30,000 KES successfully. She will use the anticipated profits from this loan to start another business. She hopes that, in the future, she will improve her living standards.
