Ismail's story

Ismail is a refugee from Somalia operating a hardware store within Kenya’s Kakuma Refugee Camp. He also sells mattresses, both wholesale and retail. This earns him an additional income that supports his large family of ten.

With the increased construction activities within the camp over the last few years, construction materials are in high demand. Ismail is able to conveniently provide cement, poles, iron sheets and other construction materials and ensure that his clients don’t have to travel long distances for such materials.

Ismail is confident that the loan from AEC will enable him purchase hardware inventory in bulk and go a long way in growing and expanding his business operations.
