Janet Achieng's story

Janet O. is a 23-year-old married mother of three children. As a way of helping her husband in taking care of the family, Janet started selling cereals in 2008 which later gave birth to a clothing business.

Janet lives in Manyatta, Kisumu, and travels all the way to Nairobi to purchase clothes that she later sells in Kisumu. As for the cereals, she purchases them in the nearby Kibuye Market where she also happens to operate her business.

Janet admits that operating two businesses is not easy because a lot of time and resources are needed. She is working hard to ensure that she manages to achieve her dream of buying a piece of land where she will be able to build rental houses.

Because of her inadequate knowledge of business operation, Janet decided to join K-MET to learn ways of improving her business. It is there that she came to learn about Kiva loans and decided to request Ksh 20,000 so that she will be able to restock her business and hence expand it.
