Jane's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase wheat flour, sugar, clothes, shoes and tea leaves.
Jane is 60 years old, married, and supporting a family of seven. She runs a retail shop in Kapsabet Town, and this has been her income-generating business for the last four years. She makes an average monthly income of 25,000 Kenyan shillings (KES). Jane has requested a loan of 30,000 KES. With this loan, she intends to purchase wheat flour, sugar, clothes, shoes and tea leaves to stock her retail shop. She anticipates making some profit, which she will use to expand her business by increasing items to meet her clients' demands. Jane hopes to improve her living standards and be financially stable. She also hopes to save money to enable her to pay school fees for her children as well as expand her business to a general goods wholesale shop.
