Obomo Getembe Kiagasuku Group's story

Serpine B. is a young Kenyan mother. She is 28 years old with three children. She also lives with the orphaned child of her late sister, who perished two years ago.

Serpine started her business three years ago after accumulating savings from her former workplace. She currently sells ladies' shoes but would like to diversify her inventory by adding children's and men’s collections. As the breadwinner of her family, this would enable her to support both her children and her husband, who does not have a job.

With the little profit that she gets from the business, Serpine still struggles to pay the house rent and feed, clothe, and educate her children. With the help of her loan, she will be able to add more stock and increase her monthly sales.

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.
