Beatrice's story

Beatrice is a 29-years-old mother from Vihiga County, located in the western part of Kenya. She is married to Benson who is a farmer and supports their family. She supports three people in her family and was blessed with two children aged 10 and 4 years old respectively.

She has a green grocery stall which she has been operating for the last ten years. It generates a monthly income of KES 5,800. She has applied for her third loan with VISION FUND KENYA, which she will use to purchase stock for her green grocery. She will use the anticipated profits to increase her stock.

Her dream is to run a wholesale business and build a nice home for her family.
