Janet is a 37-year-old, married woman who supports a family of two children and her husband adds an additional income to their family.

For nine years, Janet has been operating a second-hand clothing business, along with a handbag business stall, earning her an income of KES 8,000 at the end of every month.

Janet is now servicing her fourth loan with VisionFund Kenya, in the amount of KES 10,000, and she intends to use the entire amount to buy warm clothes, jackets, jumpers, pullovers, sweaters, blazers, and trench coats, both for adults and children to wear, which are in demand due to the cold season. In addition, Janet looks forward to purchasing some stocks of leather handbags to sell to her customers.

Janet plans to use the anticipated income to pay school fees for her children and she hopes to buy a family plot of land in the near future.
