James's story

James is a 35-year-old father of three. He has a retail shop where he sells maize flour, rice, soap, sugar and cooking fat and has been in this business for three years. He also does construction on a contract basis to earn more income to support his family since he is the breadwinner. He uses part of his income to pay fees for his children.

James is a new member of Faulu Kenya in a group called Destiny which was introduced to him by his friends. He joined the group so as to access loans easily from Faulu Kenya. He has requested a loan of Kes 50,000 to add to his stock of rice, maize flour, soap and cooking fat. He hopes to expand his shop into a wholesale business in the future.
