Claude's story

Claude is a refugee living at the Kakuma Refugee Camp in Kenya. He fled violence in his native country of Burundi in 2005 and years later started a retail grocery store business as a means of provision for his young family of three.

Claude is a skilled businessman who has been able to grow his business steadily to date. The store is located in a busy strategic location and serves both his fellow refugees and the host community with food items at affordable prices. He employs one additional employee who helps in the running of the store.

Claude, after successfully undergoing AEC’s trainings geared towards financial management and increasing sales, is requesting a loan to enable him increase a variety of food items for his customers.

A loan to Claude will ensure he continues serving his community, with more food options, while at the same time supporting his business.

Claude is grateful for your support and thankful for your investment.
