Mwashamba's story

For the past years, Mwashamba has owned a retail shop business, where neighbours and town dwellers are her potential customers. She faces a major challenge of fluctuations in the number of clients hence some of her goods perish, leading to losses.

With the KES 50,000 she wants to purchase stock of goods like sugar, rice, maize and wheat flour and cooking fat. She dreams of expanding her business into a modern café. She appreciates the previous Kiva loan and the support.
