Margaret's story

Margaret is a female Kiva borrower. She describes herself as kind, God-fearing, and goal-oriented. Margaret operates a retail shop where she sells household items and offers M-pesa (mobile-phone based money transfer) services. She describes her main challenge as a lack of water. Margaret will use this KES 75,000 loan to buy a water tank to store clean water for domestic use. She hopes that in the future, she will reduce her poverty and improve her living standards. This is her fifth loan with SMEP Microfinance Bank. She repaid her previous loan successfully.
