Charles's story

Charles, 32, is a hardworking and creative business man. He is married and blessed with three school-going children aged two and a half, seven and 14. For the past four years, he has been engaged in the transport business with a taxi to make ends meet. He supplements his income with earnings he makes from childcare, a general shop and vending water. Previously, he used to sell electronics and milk. In the next five years, he wants to have a big retail shop serving the region where he is based and to enlarge his childcare capacity.

Charles is requesting a loan of 40,000 Kenyan shillings to buy sugar, maize flour, soap, heaters, coils, bulbs, potatoes, kale and tomatoes. Thanks to Faulu Kenya, he has developed a culture of saving and has become a good time manager.
