A loan helped to buy more brick-making materials to boost her output and meet demand for more profits.


Betti's story

Betti is a 49-year-old, married woman. She has four children. She describes herself to be honest. She operates a retail business where she makes and sells bricks. She has been involved in this business for 10 years. Her business is located in a good area, and her primary customers are locals from Kakamega, Kenya.

Betti describes her biggest business challenge to be inadequate working capital. She will use the Kes 65,000 loan to buy more brick-making materials to boost her output and meet demand for more profits. Her business goal is to have more stock of bricks within five years. She hopes that in the future, she will be biggest supplier of bricks in her region. This is her fourth loan with SMEP Microfinance Bank. Previous loans were repaid successfully. She will use the anticipated profits to pay school fees.
