A loan of $500 helped to buy a large stock of cereals.

Schola's story

Schola is a 21-year-old entrepreneur who lives in Kisumu, Kenya, with her husband and 1 child. She has also been trained as a community health worker to provide home-based care to people living with HIV/AIDS in her area. She runs a cereal-selling business that she initiated in 2006. Her hard work, determination, and excellent skills have led to her success. Her profits pay her household expenses. Schola plans to use the funds from her next loan of US$500 to buy 10 sacks of grains, particularly maize. As the price of this staple food is currently low, she hopes to sell at a higher price later.

Disclaimer: Due to recent events in Kenya, the security situation in many communities remains unsettled, affecting many local businesses. Lenders to this entrepreneur should be aware that this loan may represent a higher default risk, and should be willing to accept this additional risk in making their loan.
