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

A loan helped to buy more stock of leather to make shoes.

Festus's story

Festus, 56 years old, is married to Mary and they are blessed with three children. Festus runs a business making men's shoes for resale. He has been in the business for 25 years and now he earns an average income of KES 20,000 per month.

Festus has applied for his first loan from VisionFund Kenya to enable him to buy more stock of leather to make more shoes. This will double his monthly income. Festus plans to use the anticipated profits to repay his loan on time and to buy more leather. In the future, he hopes to expand his business and to educate his children.
