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

A loan helped to increase his working capital so he can buy more products for his restaurant and butcher shop.

Goo-Ruck's story

Goo-Ruck is a seasoned businessman who owns and runs a pub, restaurant, and butcher shop in the Kalobeyei settlement camp in Kenya. He started the business soon after moving to the area in 2015 as a way to provide for his large family of eleven.

His business is located in a strategic location and serves a large number of loyal clients every day. The growth of his business has allowed Goo-Ruck to hire twelve people who help with daily operations.

Goo-Ruck attributes most of the success of his businesses to an initial loan he received from AEC. He is seeking a new loan to expand his operations further. He intends to use this loan to add stock to his pub and restaurant and keep serving his community efficiently.
