A loan of $500 helped buy bales of wheat flour, cooking oil and cereals.

Lucy's story

Lucy is a widowed woman with three children, who all attend school. She rents a house with no electricity or water. Her greatest monthly expense is food.

She has been running a retail shop for five years and previously was a shopkeeper for a businessman. The local community makes up the major number of customers for her business. Her greatest challenge is seasonality as she experiences low sales of most of the foodstuffs when the community harvests heavily from their farms.

With the 40,000 KES loan, Lucy wants to buy bales of wheat flour, cooking oil and major cereals such as beans and peas. She hopes someday to expand her shop to a bigger one.
