Rosemary's story

Rosemary is a married woman. She has four children. She describes herself as ambitious. She operates a hotel where she prepares and sells food.

She has been involved in this business for 11 years. Her business is located in a good area, and her primary customers are locals from the town of Thika.

She describes her biggest business challenge to be inadequate working capital. She will use the 120,000 KES loan to buy more ingredients for preparing food. Her business goal is to have a bigger hotel within five years. She hopes that, in the future, she will be financially stable.

This is her fifth loan with SMEP Microfinance Bank. Previous loans were repaid successfully. She will use the anticipated profits to pay school fees for her children.
