Margret's story

Meet Margret, age 56, and married with four children, ages 35, 30, 32, and 29 years, all married. She is a grandmother to six. Margret has been a beneficiary of Lewa Wildlife Conservancy’s capacity building programme, where she has acquired vast knowledge on enterprise development. Her husband does crop farming in their ancestral farm.Margret has operated a secondhand clothes shop at her home for last one year. The loan will assist her to buy clothes in bulk and to lease a shop at a nearby shopping center. Due to her age, she says the business uses less energy as compared to doing farming. Selling clothes from her house has been challenge that she hopes to overcome when she gets a stall at the shopping center, as more people will be aware of her business. Margret appreciates you checking her Kiva loan request and hopes for your support.
