A loan of $125 helped buy a smart phone and develop my jewelry business to the online community.

Grace's story

I was born in Kisii District, Manga location in a family of 10 children. My father was a businessman and my mother was a stay at home mum but working in the farm. Growing up was hard because my father had 3 wives and it was hard for him to provide for all families. Although growing up was hard and getting school fees was tough I managed to go up to to form 6 (A Levels) and also to college where I got a clearing & forwarding diploma. After completing college I didn't manage to get a job so I decided to start a business. I am currently doing my business in Kibera and I hope to grow it to become a household name in Nairobi and other counties in country.
