A loan of $275 helped more used handbags to sell.

Florence's story

Florence is a hard-working businesswoman. She has had a business selling used handbags for over seven years. She says that things are going okay, but times have been tough after the post-election violence in Kenya at the end of 2007. With a low level of stock, she says that she can’t attract a lot of customers.

With a child starting high school in January, Florence is concerned that she will not be able to afford the increased school fees. She would like to eventually take up small-scale farming in addition to the business she runs in town. With her loan proceeds, Florence will invest in a fresh supply of used handbags so that she can start bringing in the profits that she once did.
