Sera H. is 27 years old, and is single. Sera has three orphaned relatives aged 18, 12, and 6 years respectively, who she takes care of because there is no one else left in her family to take care of them. She has lived with them since they were toddlers. Sera lives in Kabete town, where she intends to operate her stall from. Sera was introduced to Action Now Kenya by her employer who saw her great potential in day care, after caring for her child as a nanny.
Sera intends to open a stall in Kabete town on the outskirts of Nairobi where she will be selling children clothes and also she will have the opportunity of advertising her day care services, while selling the clothes. She intends to open a day care business in the future, once she is well settled in business. Using her business, she will also use the opportunity to educate women on nutrition and the best way to feed their children. Sera is therefore kindly requesting a loan for Ksh 20,000. With this loan, Sera will be able to purchase a bale of second-hand clothes, hangers and stationeries, and she will also put up a notice board from which she will receive some income out of every advertisement put up by her clients. The repayment period for her loan will be 10 months.
