A loan of $2,225 helped a member to increase her shop's stock.

Kenda Kaala Self-Help Group's story

Evelyn A. is a young Kenyan woman aged 30 with 3 children. She also lives with 2 orphan children of her late brother who perished 2 years ago.

Evelyn started her business 3 years ago after accumulating savings from her former work place. She currently operates a small retail shop in the neighborhood where she resides with her family, located in Busia district. She would like to expand her business and start operating a wholesale shop. As she is the primary bread winner for her family, it would enable her to support both her children and her husband, who has a low-paying job. With the little profit that she gets from the business, Evelyn still struggles to feed, clothe, and educate her children and to pay her house rent. With the help of her loan, Evelyn will be able to increase her shop's stock to enable her to boost her monthly sales.
