Jane's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support
A loan helped to buy spinning materials to start a business making carpets to sell.
Jane is a 52-year-old widowed woman. She has 4 children between the ages of 17 and 38 years. She works very hard to support her family as she is their sole provider. She describes herself as a determined woman. Jane owns poultry and operates a retail stall where she sells timber and eggs. She has been involved in this business for 5 years. Her business is located in a market, and her primary customers are residents of the nearby estates. She describes her biggest business challenge as the outbreak of diseases that affect the chickens, especially during cold seasons. Jane will use the loan of 15,000 KES to buy spinning materials to start a new business making carpets to sell. Her business goal is to become a supplier of eggs and chickens for supermarkets within 5 years. She hopes that, in the future, she will be able to buy a plot of land with the profits generated and build a house for her family.
