A loan of $2,675 helped a member to increase stock of grocery.

Ilela Self-Help Group's story

Agripina M. is a 26-year-old average Kenyan woman who is married with two children.

She has been in the business of selling fruits and vegetables for two years. She got her capital from accumulating small savings with a women’s group, a program that is commonly referred to as a “merry-go-round.” She currently operates a small grocery stall selling fruits and vegetables in the neighborhood where she resides with her family.

Agripina uses the profits from her business to feed, clothe, and educate her children. Her husband also relies on her, as he does not have a job. With the help of her loan, Agripina will be able to increase her grocery stock and also diversify her business to include selling fruit juice. This will help her to increase her monthly sales.
