Clement's story

Clement is an experienced young Kenyan entrepreneur who owns and runs a cybercafe and Internet services business at the Kakuma Refugee Camp. More than that, he is a father of one and a husband. His business is strategically and conveniently located to serve both the refugees and the host community with ICT (information and communications technology) and Internet services at affordable rates.

He moved to Kakuma in 2017 from Kitale and established the business soon after acquiring a grant from Swiss Aid. To date, the business has gained a good reputation at the camp and continues to amass a strong base of loyal customers. The shop has experienced considerable growth over the past few years and, as a result, has been able to accommodate two additional employees who help in its running.

Clement actively underwent AEC’s business training program focused on financial management and increasing sales. He was able to successfully apply the skills acquired from the training in running the business, which now boasts improved cashflows and efficiency.

He is requesting a loan to increase his working capital to enable him to purchase additional inventory for the business. This will enable him to continue providing the community with Internet and ICT services, while at the same time, allowing him to keep providing a better life for his family.
