A loan of $650 helped to purchase more cosmetics and sanitary products.


Truphena's story

Truphena A. is a 29-year-old married mother of one. She lives with her husband Michael and daughter Marion in Mikindani, Mombasa, where she runs a pharmacy and also sells cosmetics. She has been in that business for the last three years. She also offers counseling services to her clients in the area.

This will be Truphena's first loan from KADET, and her first from any source to finance her business. With the money, she plans to purchase more cosmetics and sanitary products in order to meet the demands of her customers. Truphena says the satisfaction her customers get from her services motivates her to grow her business more.
