Micah Chepkorir's story

Micah, 42, is a devoted mother of four children. She is a charcoal seller with years of experience in this business and enjoys it. She delights interacting with her customers, as she gets to understand their needs better. Her clients include hotels and schools, as charcoal is the main source of cooking fuel in the community.

With this loan, she will buy more sacks of charcoal to meet the customers' demands. This is her third loan cycle and she has a good repayment history.
