A loan of $125 helped expand my cereal business through buying items such as millet, beans, and maize.

Rael G's story

I grew up in rural Kenya at Bomachoge. Growing up life was very hard. Coming up from a poor family I was expected to engage in daily chores such as fetching water from the streams, firewood or digging early morning or evening before going to school. These things really compromised my schooling. At grade 8 some of my family members wanted me to stop school and learn tailoring or hair braiding. My father changed his mind and took me through secondary school in which I did not do very well due to home environment hardships.

Then I went to Nairobi to work in a restaurant, it is where I met my husband. Life continued to be hard. I left Nairobi to live in my husband’s home. We were selling bread on a bicycle. It did not work. My husband left to find job and he recently joined police. Though I don't have a clear picture of how much he makes I am grateful because he added to the money I collect from merry go round at our Grace Fund project to assist me to start a cereal business. I have always wanted to do business but our low level of income has been a hindrance. We had to quit selling bread on the bicycle as the work was so much and the returns so low. My dream now is to grow my cereal business and impact my family and community
