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


A loan helped to purchase sacks of cereals during harvest season to keep in anticipation of good prices ahead.


Pilister's story

This marks Pilister's second time borrowing to finance her business. She is grateful for loans from VisionFund Kenya to improve her living standards and help her meet her family's basic needs.

Her retail business has grown, and she is now requesting more money to purchase sacks of cereals during this harvest season to keep in anticipation of good prices ahead.

Pilister's hopes and dreams for the future are to own a successful business.
