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

A loan helped to purchase grocery items for her business.

Amina's story

Amina, a refugee and experienced entrepreneur from Somalia, owns and runs a small grocery store at the Kakuma Refugee Camp in Kenya. As the sole bread-winner in her home, she has been providing a stable source of income for her family.

Amina's store has grown steadily over the past few years and continues to build a loyal customer base at the camp. This has led to her expansion into the boutique business, and the store now serves the community by providing both grocery and clothing items at affordable prices.

Amina actively completed holistic entrepreneurship trainings geared toward financial management and increasing sales with AEC. She is requesting a loan to purchase additional grocery items for her store and expand her business even further. This will ensure that she continues providing the community with more consumption options while growing her business at the same time.
