Alice's story

Alice is 33 years old and a mother of two children. She is a shopkeeper who supports her family from her business. Alice likes serving people and delights in meeting their needs as she interacts with them.

She is humbly requesting a loan of 45,000 Kenya shillings (KES) to add stock of detergents and lotions to boost her business. She is known as a hardworking lady who will use her profit to pay her loan in the least time possible.

This is her first loan. Her dream is to educate her children to university level.
