A loan of $200 helped to buy the chemicals necessary for making her detergent.


Mary's story

Mary, 56, is married and has six children. She describes herself as a quiet woman.


Besides her work as a farmer, Mary has had a shop for the past two years where she sells detergent. Her shop is located near a busy town, and her primary customers are schools, hotels and local residents from nearby neighborhoods. A lack of enough money to improve her business is her main challenge.


Mary is applying for a 15,000 KES loan with SMEP DTM; she borrowed and successfully paid off a previous loan of 5,000 KES with SMEP. She will use the money to buy the chemicals necessary for making her detergent.


Mary’s ambition is to see her business grow and take on employees within five years.
