Leonidas's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to add more products in his grocery store business.

Leonidas's story

Leonidas is a refugee, but more than that, he is single and a business owner. He has a proven track record of success. Since he opened his grocery store it has gained a good reputation in the camp and has a strong base of loyal customers.

It all started in 2016 when Leonidas and his family fled the violence in Burundi due to political insecurities. After resettling in one of Kenya's refugee camps, Leonidas quickly started his business to provide for his family.

After participating in AEC’s business training program focused on improving financial management and increasing sales, Leonidas is requesting a loan to grow his business even more.

This loan will help him add more products to the grocery store business, offering his community more options, and giving him the opportunity to build a better life for his family through growing his business.
