Adam's story

Adam is a refugee and established entrepreneur from Sudan who fled violence in his native country and resettled in Kenya in 1997. He owns and runs a retail grocery store business at the camp which is strategically located to serve his fellow refugees and the surrounding host community affordably.

The business has grown steadily over the years and continues to build itself a strong base of loyal customers with its good reputation. The growth experienced has seen Adam employ one staff who helps in running the store.

Adam was a beneficiary of an initial loan with AEC which he used to grow his business. He is requesting another loan to add onto his working capital increase for purchase of additional grocery stock for the store. The financing will enable Adam to continue to serve the community with more consumption options, while at the same time allowing him the opportunity to grow his business even further.
