A loan helped buy lorries and more stock for my hardware business.

Leah's story

I am a member of a JOYWO table banking group. I am taking out a loan with my group members. I was born 40 years ago in Tembwo area of Rift valley province. I was born to a family of six to peasant farmers who fended for us by doing menial work. I attended Manaret primary school and proceeded to Kaplong girls secondary school. Though I was intellectually capable, I dropped out of school due to lack of finances. I started helping my parents in our kitchen garden and made some little savings. Out of the little savings that I had, I started a small hardware shop selling building materials e.g. cement, nails. My future dream is to own a large fully stocked hardware shop.
