Beatrice, age 37, distributes and deals in fuel to earn her living. She has been a fuel dealer distributor for seven years, earning an income of KES.20,000 at the end of every month.

She and her husband Donatus have four children. They combine their incomes in order to support the family.

Beatrice was introduced to VisionFund Kenya by a credit officer, and she is now accessing her first loan. She will use her loan funds in the amount of KES 20,000 to add a stock of fuel, as she is running low on fuel supplies to sell to her customers.

Beatrice plans to use the anticipated increase in her income to pay school fees for her children.

She hopes eventually to become a fuel distribution wholesaler by extending her fuel supply business into nearby towns.
