Linet's story

Linet is 24 years old. She is single and blessed with six children who are all below the age of 18 years. She is running a grocery. She has been in the business for one year and now she earns an average income of KES 2,500 per month.

She has applied for the first loan from VisionFund Kenya to enable her to buy more groceries for resale. With the anticipated profits, she plans to repay her loan on time and also expand her business.
