but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

Philis's story

Philis is 31 years old and married to Joseph. God has blessed them with five children. Philis is running a green grocery she has been in this business for 10 years. She now earns an average income of 12,000 KES per month.

She has applied for her second loan from Vision Fund Kenya to enable her buy more stock. She will use the loan to purchase tomatoes, omena, onions, Sukuma wiki, and cabbages which will increase her sales.
