Onesime's story

Onesime is a Burundian refugee living in Kakuma, one of the refugee camps in Kenya. He fled from his country due to mass killings and violence in 2016-2017. Upon his arrival in Kenya, he saw that the stipend he received would not be enough to provide a life for his wife and four children that could cover all of their needs.

He decided to start a grocery store where he sells products that are highly demanded by refugees. His business has grown and he has gained quite a number of loyal clients. Onesime wants to introduce new products to his business; with the help of a loan he will be able to purchase them, hence increasing the number of customers.
