but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to add more products to her retail store business to meet the demands of her clients.

Safio's story

Safio is a refugee. More than that, she is a wife, a mother, and a business owner. She has a proven track record of success. Since she opened her retail store, it has gained a good reputation in the camp and has a strong base of loyal customers.

It all started in 2011, when Safio and her family fled the violence in Somalia due to political insecurities. After resettling in one of Kenya's refugee camps, Safio quickly started her business to provide for her family. Having participated in AEC’s business training program focused on improving financial management and increasing sales, Safio is now requesting a loan to grow her business even more.

A loan to Safio will help her to add more products to her retail store business, offering her community more options, and giving her the opportunity to build a better life for her family through growing her business.
