Mellen's story

My name is Mellen Ombongi. I am a 48 eight years old woman who grew up in Kisii. Life was very hard as my mother struggled to bring me and my siblings up. I was not able to go beyond 12th grade in my schooling as my parents could not afford fees. My husband used to own a carpentry business which did not prosper and he become jobless. Now I am left to be the breadwinner of 5 children, 4 boys and one girl. I really want my kids to do well so they do not have to struggle the way I have struggled. I am so hopeful and looking forward to the Kiva loan. I was very excited because my trustee has given me the trust of endorsing me.
