Sarah is from Kenya. She has 2 children. She needs a loan of $200 to buy foodstuff for cooking.
Sarah, a mother of two, has a kiosk where she operates a food selling business for a living to support her family. Her main challenge is the high cost of foodstuff in Kenya. She needs financial support in order to expand her business.
With a loan from World Vision Sarah will be able to buy foodstuff for cooking. With the additional income she will be able to better provide for her family and send her children to school. In the future, Sarah hopes to open up a hotel and to provide job opportunities for others.
In areas where the poor live alongside the more affluent, businesses in the service sector can be very successful. Services include flower cultivation, tailoring/sewing, transportation, repair work, beauty salons and barber shops, and restaurants. Loans are needed to begin, expand, or sustain business with tools and supplies. Loans given to entrepreneurs in the service sector account for around 7% of our loans.
