Mary's story

Mary is a hardworking happily married Kenyan lady. She runs a general store business to provide for her family and support her husband, and is seeking a loan to add more stock to her business in order to ensure she meets her customers' demands.

Her love for her business continues to grow everyday as she enjoys interacting with her customers. Through her profits, she will be able to pay back the loan and improve her family’s standard of living. Her dream is to expand her shop more in the future.
