A loan of $125 helped buy second hand shoes for my shoes business.


Yohannes's story

I was born and grew up in Mekele, in Northern Ethiopia. I attended school in the same town until I completed my high school education. I left my home country due to political prosecution I faced in January 2011 to save my life from the current ruling party. When I came to Nairobi I started living in Pangani, struggling with life since I didn't have anyone to support me. I started a business that would keep me engaged and give me income and I plan to work hard as I await for a permanent solution to my problems.
