Grace Kwamboka's story

Grace is forty-nine years old and married to Evans Ototo, who is fifty-five years old. They have five children, named Stella Nyambane - twenty-four years old, Monica Nyamusi - twenty-one years old, Juliet Kemunto -nineteen years old, Jackson Mambe - fifteen years old and Christine Gesale - nine years old.

The client has been in the quarry business for two and a half years. She was introduced to the Kiva field partner, KADET, by other existing clients, and she has no loans from other MFIs. She intends to use the loan to rent another site and hire more miners.

Grace's place of business is Njiru - an upcoming market center in a semi-slum area.

With the extra profit, she intends to pay school fees for her children. Grace works hard and her hopes and dreams are to see all her children go through school successfully.
