Mary's story

Mary is a 30 year old entrepreneur. She lives in Kisumu in Kenya with her husband and three school-age children. She set up a fruit and vegetable stall near her home early last year. Her hard work and determination have led to her success within this one year period. She manages her stall during the day and also offers hair dressing services to her established clients in the evenings.

Her profits pay the household expenses as well as her children's school fees. Mary plans to use the funds from her next loan of $600.00 to increase her stock of vegetables, establish a new beauty salon kiosk, and save the remaining amount to use in case of of emergencies.
