Sofia's story

Sofia is a daring Kenyan entrepreneur who runs an auto-spare and repair shop within Kakuma, a small town in the northern part of Kenya. She is a mother of one and she strives to ensure that her family is well taken care of and affords them a quality standard of living.

She has built herself a niche and is currently servicing vehicles and motor bikes for the majority of the agencies and companies within the area. She is optimistic for growth in the next few months, and is aiming at creating employment opportunities for some of the jobless youth from the community.

Sofia intends to use this loan amount to increase her inventory of spare parts and continue to effectively serve her clients.

She hopes that she continues to inspire and empower her fellow women to take on more technical jobs and create job opportunities for the community.
