A loan of $275 helped a Larger Variety of Shoes.


Lilian Atieno's story

Lilian is the mother of three, and works hard vending shoes in the Oile market at Kisumu. She has operated her own business for the past three years. Lilian works hard to keep her prices stable in order to attract both returning and new customers. Lilian is requesting a loan in order to purchase a larger variety of footwear, and to also expand her business.


Lilian faces many challenges in operating her business, the foremost being carrying her inventory via public transportation. While the twenty minute ride on the public buses puts Lilian at risk for theft, she continues for the sake of her children’s education and wellbeing.
