Mary's story

Mary 60 years old. She is a widow blessed with children who are above the age of 18 years. She owns rental units. She has been in the business for the past 16 years and earns KES 16,000 per month.

She has applied for her sixth loan from VisionFund Kenya to enable her to renovate the units which have been there for years and also buy materials to finish the ones in progress. With the anticipated profits, she plans to expand the business and also pay college fees for her children since she is the only breadwinner in the family.

In the near future she hopes to have another plot and build more houses so that she establishes her business.
