Jean's story

Jean is a widely-known and seasoned entrepreneur with years of experience to his name. He is a refugee from Burundi who owns and runs a retail food store within the Kakuma Refugee Camp in Kenya. The business has been supporting his family of four with a decent means of livelihood since early 2016.

With a small initial capital, Jean’s expertise and dedication has seen him tremendously revamp and grow the business over the past few years. This is an employment-creating business which currently employs seven permanent staff and a few casuals whose number increases based on seasonality.

Jean is looking to employ even more staff as the business expands further. A loan to Jean will see him restock the grocery shop with cereals, like maize and beans, and sugar in bulk to continue serving the community with variety for consumption.
