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

A loan helped to buy more tomatoes, onions, and dagaa [dried fish] for resale.

Maximillah's story

Maximillah is 51 years old. She is married to Wasike, and together they are blessed with six children; four children are under the age of 18 years.

She sells a variety of fresh vegetables and dagaa [dried fish]. She has been in the business for 10 years, and now she is earning an average income of KES 20,000 per month.

She has applied for her fourth loan from VisionFund Kenya to enable her to buy more tomatoes, onions and dagaa for resale.

With the anticipated profits, she plans to repay her loan on time and also pay school fees for the children.

In the future, she hopes to grow her business and also have her children educated.
