Alice's story

Alice is a single woman. She describes herself to be honest. She operates a retail business where she sells shoes. She has been involved in this business for five years. Her business is located in a good area and her primary customers are locals.

Alice describes her biggest business challenge to be inadequate working capital. She will use the Kes 40,000 loan to buy more stock of shoes. She hopes that in the future, she will be successful. This is her second loan with SMEP Microfinance Bank. The previous loan was repaid successfully. Alice will use the anticipated profits to pay school fees.
