Saada's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to purchase African fabric materials for making African dresses.

Saada's story

Saada is 42 years old. She is married to Amin and they are blessed with two children. She has been operating a bedsheets and fabric business for 19 years and earns an income of KES 50,000 per month.

This is her fourth loan with Visionfund Kenya. She will be using the loan to purchase more stock of bedsheets; profits will help her to educate her children.

Her hopes and dreams for the future is to expand and grow her business from hawking to a stall.
