Elias's story

Elias is a Kenyan entrepreneur who owns and runs a boutique and general merchandise store business at the Kakuma Refugee Camp. He established his business in 2016 after identifying an existing gap for good quality, affordable, general houseware items in the camp. It provides a means of provision for his young family of three.

The store currently employs three staff from within the community and exhibits an even greater potential to accommodate more given its growth trajectory over the past few months.

Elias has a well-laid out investment plan which outlines his expansion plan and is seeking external financing to add bulk inventory of general houseware items to his purchase point. This will ensure that he is able to make use of economies of scale and increase his profit margins and, hence, keep the expansion plan hope alive.
