A loan of $500 helped business expansion.

Mary's story

Mary A. is a 33-year-old entrepreneur. She lives in Kisumu, Kenya, with her husband and five children. She specializes in making the local favorites, chapattis (fried flat bread) and mandazzis (fried sweet dough). She has been in this business for the last fourteen years. The location of her business and her many years of doing good business within the community has gained her a good reputation and a wide customer base. Her business has done quite well due to the added advantage of access to KMET loan funds; she has combined the additional money with hard work and perseverance in order to increase her stock and materials and build a successful income-generating business. She has applied for US $500 to further expand her business.

Disclaimer: Due to recent events in Kenya, the security situation in many communities remains unsettled, affecting many local businesses. Lenders to this entrepreneur should be aware that this loan may represent a higher default risk, and should be willing to accept this additional risk in making their loan.
