Tabitha's story

Tabitha is 26 years old and married and blessed with two children. She operates a retail shop business. She earns an average a monthly income of KES. 30,000.

She has borrowed a second loan of KES. 50,000 and plans to use this amount to purchase sugar, rice, sodas and bars of soap for resale at the shop. She is hopeful this shall increase her revenue.

The anticipated profits shall be used to repay the loan and pay school fees for her children.

Her future hopes and dreams are to become financially stable.
