Wema Self-Help Group's story

Albert Birundi M. is a 30 year old Kenyan father of six children. Also living with him are the two orphaned children of his late sister, who passed away two years ago.



Albert started his business four years ago after accumulating savings from his previous job. He currently operates a small retail cereal stall, but he would like to expand his business and start operating a wholesale shop. He is the breadwinner for his family, and expanding his stall would enable him to support his children and wife, who has a low-paying job. With the little profit that he gets from the business, Albert still struggles to feed, clothe, and educate his children and pay the rent on his house. But with the help of his loan, he will be able to expand his business and increase his 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.
