Penina's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase additional stock of medicines.
Penina is a 33-year-old married woman who has 2 children. She describes herself as honest. She operates a pharmacy where she buys and sells medicines. She has been involved in this business for over 3 years. Her business is located in a good area and her primary customers are locals from Mwiki, Kenya. She describes her biggest business challenge as inadequate working capital. She will use the KES 65,000 loan to purchase additional stock of medicines. This is her second loan with SMEP Microfinance Bank. She will use the anticipated profits to pay school fees. She would like to say thank you for the financial support provided by Kiva lenders.
