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

A loan helped to add stock of foodstuffs to her general store and to educate her children.

Doreen's story

Doreen is a hardworking, happily married Kenyan lady who has been blessed with four children and a loving husband. 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 every day as she enjoys interacting with her customers.

Part of her loan will also help her to educate her children. Through her profits, she will be able to pay back the loan and improve her family’s standard of living. Like any loving parent, her dream has been to see her children succeed in life and give them a good education as well as expand her business.
