A loan helped to add hardware stock and purchase an extra fridge, laptop, and lamination machine.


Abdiwahid's story

Abdiwahid is a seasoned refugee-entrepreneur from Somalia living in one of Kenya’s refugee camps. He established his hardware store in 2019 to provide his young family of two with a stable means of livelihood.

Over the past few months, Abdiwahid has been able to introduce soft drinks and refreshments as well a bank and mobile-money transfer services within the store. These additions have allowed him to diversify his income streams and expand his market reach within the camp.

Abdiwahid is looking forward to expanding the store’s operations even further. A loan to him will allow him to add hardware stock and purchase an extra fridge, laptop, and lamination machine in a bid to keep sufficiently serving his community within the camp.
