Mgeni's story

Mgeni is a married woman with five children, all of whom attend school. She owns a house that neither has electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.

She operates a soft drink selling business, selling from home to her neighbours and passersby. She faces a challenge of seasonality and high cost of transporting raw materials.

With the Kshs 15,000 she wants to purchase sacks of coconut, mangoes, and passion fruit. She decided to join Kiva's partner Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
