Abol's story

Abol is a refugee, but more than that, she is a mother and business owner. She has a proven track record of success. Since she opened her grocery store it has gained a good reputation in the camp and has a strong base of loyal customers. It all started in 1999 when Abol and her family fled the violence in South Sudan due to political insecurities. After resettling in one of Kenya's refugee camps, Abol quickly started her business to provide for her family. After participating in AEC’s business training program focused on improving financial management and increasing sales, Abol is requesting a loan to grow her business even more. This loan will help her add more products to the grocery store business, offering her community more options, and giving her the opportunity to build a better life for her family through growing her business.
