Reslah's story

Reslah is a 26-year-old married woman. She has two children. She describes herself as honest and industrious. She operates a farm where she sells milk, chicken and cereals. She has been involved in this business for five years. Her business is located in a good area, and her primary customers are locals from Kaimosi, Kenya. She describes her biggest business challenge as inadequate working capital.

She will use the KES 20,000 loan to buy more chicken and seeds. Her business goal is to have more dairy cows within five years. She hopes that in the future, she will be largest supplier of milk and cereals. This is her first loan with SMEP Microfinance Bank. She will use the anticipated profits to buy a dairy cow.
