Tabitha's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to purchase a larger stock of cereals to sell.

Tabitha's story

Tabitha is married to Kennedy, and together they are blessed with four children, ages 24, 21, 16 and 13 years old. She is running a cereals business.

She has been in the business for five years, and now she earns an average income of 4,500 KES per month. However, she has applied for her seventh loan from Vision Fund Kenya to enable her to buy more cereals.

With the anticipated profits, she plans to repay her loan on time and also to educate her children. In future, she hopes to grow her business and continue educating her children for a better future.
