Mwaka's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase bundles of fish for resale.

Mwaka's story

Mwaka is a married woman and has been blessed with three children, all of whom attend school. Together with her husband, they live in their own house that has neither electricity nor piped water.

Mwaka has had a business selling fish for over ten years. She sells from home to restaurant operators and passersby. She faces the major challenges of seasonality and perishability leading to losses.

With this 15,000 Kenyan shilling loan, she wants to purchase bundles of fish for resale. She dreams of expanding her business and establishing another business in the near future.
