A loan helped to purchase to purchase sugar, cleaning detergents, calling cards, milk, and bread to sell in his shop.


James's story

James is 34 years old; he is married with four children. He has had a general store for 10 years selling cleaning detergents, soft drinks, sugar, bread, and M-pesa services. He earns KES 30,000 a month.

This is his second loan to finance his business. He will be using the loan to purchase to purchase sugar, cleaning detergents, calling cards, milk, and bread and hopes his profits will help him to buy food for his family.

His hopes and dreams for the future are to become financially stable and take care of his family.
