Dorothy's story

Dorothy is a single mother with two children. To earn a living, she runs a retail shop and also sells spirits and wines to supplement her family’s income. Being a single mother, Dorothy works hard in her business so that she can afford to educate her children. She also sells chicken when the demand is high, especially during the festival season. Since Dorothy joined Faulu Kenya, she has expanded her business by adding more stock. She is thankful to Faulu Kenya for funding her businesses. Dorothy is requesting another loan of 70,000 KES to buy stock such as beans, rice, and green grams (a legume crop).
