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

A loan helped buy ladies hand bags for sell at my shop.

Christine's story

I grew up in Equator village in Eldama Ravine. My parents earned a living through farming but life was very difficult. After finishing school I decided to come to Nairobi and settled in Donholm estate where I opened my business selling women's hand bags. Currently I live in Donholm estate with my three siblings whom I take care of. My future dream is to open a large boutique selling ladies clothes and other fashionable items for women.
