A loan of $600 helped to add stocks of maize and wheat flour to his kiosk.


Mwadiga's story

Mwadiga currently earns money through operating a kiosk that is located beside his house in his rural village on the south coast of Kenya. He has been running this kiosk for the last three years. In addition, he does farming together with his wife, who has one infant. He works more than eight hours a day. He does this because he needs to cover his family’s food and medical expenses. They do not have medical insurance. He currently lives in his own house, which has neither electricity nor piped water.

He needs the loan to add stocks of maize and wheat flour to his kiosk. Mwadiga’s dream is to become independent and to purchase a grinding machine in the future.
