Salinah's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy more bags of dry maize for her posho mill.

Salinah's story

Salinah is 37 years old; she is married to Peter, and together they are blessed with three children who are 7, 10, and 15 years of age. She runs a posho mill. She has been in the business for three years and now earns an average income of KES 5,000 per month.

She has applied for her third loan from VisionFund Kenya to enable her buy more bags of maize. With the anticipated profits, she plans to repay her loan and also pay school fees for her children.

In the near future, she hopes to open another posho mill. This second mill will enable her to establish her business.
