Hellen Omaido's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped purchase maize flour, sugar and bar soap to sell to my customers.

Hellen Omaido's story

I grew up in kitale town in amagoro farm. Life was very good in the farm because I had a father and a mother who cared for me. I went to Kitale primary school and then to Cherengany secondary school. Life started to be unfair to me after the death of my father then followed by my Mother, I had nobody to take of me. I then decided to come to Nairobi top look for work that could support me financially, I then got married but my luck got even bad because my husband lost his job and couldn't support the family anymore. I now live in Kibera slum with my family. I decided to start a shopkeeping business to sustain my family.
