Keran's story

Keran N. is forty-four years old, married, and has two children. Her husband is a driver and their children are still in school. Her business is located at Eastleigh estate in Nairobi where she engages in making and selling ladies' suits, skirts, dresses and uniforms for schoolchildren. Keran serves the local people. Her major challenge is lack of enough funds and strong competition, which is why she has borrowed Kes. 50,000 to buy more materials. In future, she hopes to expand her business and give her children a good education. She is hardworking, friendly and respectful.
