Risper's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to add more fabric and sewing materials.
Risper is 31 years old, widowed and supports two children, ages 11 and 10 years old. She has been in tailoring services for the last five years and earns an income of 10,000 Kenyan Shillings (KES). Risper is now on her third loan of 30,000 KES from VisionFund Kenya and intends to use this amount to buy more fabric and sewing materials for dresses and to sell to her customers. The profit she earns will be used to pay school fees for her children. She hopes for growth in her business
