A loan of $1,200 helped a member to pay school fees.


Kamu Kamu Group's story

Salim, a member of Kamu Kamu group is 30 years of age, married and has eight children. Six of his children attend school. He also takes care of two dependants because their parents are incapable of meeting their needs like school fees.

Salim rides a motorcycle to earn a living. He started this job in 2004 after failing to find employment and having to meet the growing needs of his family. Salim's major clients are people from the abattoir where he stages to the different directions where they deliver their supplies. Salim's dream is to venture into cattle trading if he gets enough capital. His major challenge is his health. Doctors told him he has developed pneumonia because of the wind from riding the motorcycle but since he has no other source of income, he has persisted. Salim is very hardworking and honest according to colleagues. He confided in me that if he had enough funds, he would be doing business instead of riding a motorcycle.

In this group: Salim, Edson, Lydia, Ibrahim, Fred, Patrick
