Dahir's story

Dahir is a refugee, as well as a father, a husband, and a business owner. Despite his disability, Dahir has a proven track record of success. Since starting his retail store, Dahir has gained a good reputation in the camp and a strong base of loyal customers.

In 2017, Dahir and his family fled the violence in Ethiopia due to political insecurity. After resettling in one of Kenya's refugee camps, Dahir quickly started his business to provide for his family.

After participating in AEC’s business training program that focuses on improving financial management and increasing sales, Dahir is requesting a loan to grow his business even more. The loan will help him purchase more inventory for his retail store so that he can offer his community more options. This will give him the opportunity to build a better life and provide resilience for his family by growing his business.
