Noami's story

Noami is a mother of four, a wife, a skilled and seasoned Kenyan entrepreneur who owns and runs a retail grocery store just next to the Kakuma Refugee Camp. The business is strategically and conveniently located to serve both the refugees and the host community with grocery and food items at affordable prices.

Noami saw the need to start the business as a means of stable means of provision for her family in 2017. To date, the business continues to amass itself a strong base of loyal customers with its good reputation. The business has experienced considerable growth over the past years evidenced by the expanded operations.

Noami was a beneficiary of a first and second loan with AEC which she used to add onto stock for the store. She successfully repaid the loan on time and with ease and is now looking to getting a subsequent loan in order to further increase her working capital.

This will ultimately allow her the chance to keep growing and expanding her business operations.
