Rusinga Self-Help Group's story

Abraham K. is a young Kenyan father aged 29 with 2 children. He also lives with 1 orphan child of his late brother who perished 2 years ago.

Abraham started his business 3 years ago, after accumulating savings from his former work place in a local hospital in Bungoma town. He currently deals in men’s second-hand shoes but would like to diversify to children’s and ladies’ collections as well in the future.

As he is the bread winner for his family, it would enable him to support both his children and his wife, who does not have a job. With the little profit that he gets from his business, Abraham still struggles to feed, clothe, and educate his children.

With the help of his loan, Abraham will be able to purchase second-hand shoes in bulk to enable him to boost his 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.
