A loan of $525 helped leather.


George's story

George M. W. is fifty-eight years, married and has four children. His business is located at Gatundu near Family Bank in Thika, Kenya and it is well known by the name Ituru Shoe Repair Shop. He makes shoes and sells them to the local people. He also engages in shoe repair and he has been in this business for the last twenty-five years.

He says that his major challenge has been too many people doing the same business as his, so customers are spoilt for choice. He is using his Kes 40,000 loan to purchase leather to make more shoes and for repairs to grow his business.

In future, he hopes to open a big shop for shoe supply. He also has a dream to give his children a good education. He is a very hardworking man.
