A loan of $250 helped to purchase more potatoes for sale.


William's story

William is 34 years old, married to Gladys, and blessed with three children. He sells potatoes, a business he started a year ago, and earns a monthly income of KES 10,000.

He has requested a loan of KES 20,000 to purchase more Irish potatoes for sale. The profit he makes will be ploughed back into his business. His dream is to expand his business and improve his living standard. This is his first loan.
