Ayele's story

Ayele is a refugee from Ethiopia living at the Kakuma Refugee Camp in Kenya.

He is single, and his main motivation behind starting the retail grocery store is to be able to afford himself and the extended family a quality standard of living.

The store provides employment and supports two individuals who help out in its daily operations.

With an injection of additional capital into the business, the store possesses capacity to employ an even greater number in the coming months.

Ayele has diversified his business operations by adding used clothing items just outside the store’s entrance to allow for multiple streams of income.

He is seeking external financing from AEC to introduce a variety of foodstuff and grocery items, which he currently does not stock.

Supporting Ayele’s business will ensure that he conveniently keeps providing the community with solutions for their needs.
