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

A loan helped a single mom to buy fruits and vegetables and start a new grocery store.

Rose's story

Rose is a single mom of two children living in Eldoret, a town whose surroundings have vast agricultural potential and numerous small farms. Rose herself practices mixed dairy and crop farming.

Filled with determination to better her family's living conditions while not being deterred by her single status, Rose wants to start a new business in her village. As she was selling milk in her local market, she realized that there was no grocery in her region and wants to open one. Rose has looked for and found good suppliers, and has now requested a loan that she will use to buy fruits and vegetables for resale.

Rose is skilled in business and has good customer service skills. These abilities will enable her to excel in her business, and she is confident of future profits. With the new business, she will be able to pay her children's tuition and give them a decent life. She is very full of expectations and hopes for this loan now that she has repaid all previous loans!
