Catherine's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase oranges, bananas, and green vegetables.
Catherine is a married woman with four children. She lives at a house without electricity and running water. Her greatest monthly expense is food for the family. Catherine operates a fruit and vegetables stall at the market and sells to town dwellers and neighbors. She faces competition and changing weather in her business. She will use 50,000 KES to purchase oranges, bananas, and green vegetables to resell. She dreams of expanding and establishing a retail shop in the future.
