A loan helped a member to buy different colors of car paint to resell.


Famille Ahadi Group's story

Mapendo began her business selling car paint seven years ago after several years of intense household hardships. Thanks to her business, today she is able to take charge of her familial responsibilities and her customer base has grown overnight.

She would like to increase her profits even more so that she can buy better quality paint and attract more customers to ensure the future of her children. Mapendo is the only one in the family who does this business; her husband provides guidance only.
