Alima's story

Alima is a lady who lives in a village in Bungoma county. She is a mother of three children aged 16, 14 and 12 years old.

Alima is a business-lady who deals in clothing and jewellery sales. She has been in this business for a long time and she is happy when her clients appreciate her clothing and jewellery. They are always fashionable and she sells at a good price that attracts clients to her. Her challenge is to meet all the needs of her clients with little stock to sell.

With this Kiva loan,Alima will buy more jewellery and clothes and boost her business. She will be in a position to serve her clients better and increase her profit, which she will use to pay her loan and support her family.

She does her business by herself and this is the first loan that she has taken. She dreams of investing for her children and opening branches in different parts of the county.

This loan is special because:

It gives financial access to low income micro-entrepreneurs.
