A loan of $825 helped to purchase six bales of secondhand clothing for resale.


Elizabeth's story

Elizabeth is now 39 years old and still living with her three children whom she supports. She is still running her secondhand clothing stall in Awasi and her monthly income has increased to KES. 23,000.

She is requesting her third loan of KES.71,000. She repaid the previous one successfully and intends to use this amount to purchase six bales of second hand clothing for resale.

The profits she earns will be used to repay the loan and pay school fees for her school going children. Her dream is to see her business grow and her children get a good education.
