Scholar's story

Scholar has been operating a cosmetics sales shop for a period of four years earning an income of KES 25,000 at the end of every month. Scholar was introduced to VisionFund Kenya by a credit officer and is now servicing her first loan of KES 100,000 and intends to use this amount to buy hair accessories, hair oils, hair braids, body lotions and hair chemicals to add to her stock which is running low.
