Ruth's story

Ruth O. is a 35-year-old entrepreneur and mother of six school-aged children.
She lives in Rongo, Kenya. She began her current business of selling second-hand clothes ten years ago. She specializes in women’s clothing: skirts, dresses, casual clothes, and bed sheets. She periodically travels to Nairobi, where she is able to purchase a good variety at wholesale price.

The prime location of her business on a busy street, her ten years of experience, and her friendly interaction with customers has enabled her to establish a good customer base. Ruth plans to expand her business with her next loan of US $800.
