Margaret from Kenya

$1400 to increase the rotating amount of money in her mobile transactions business, as well as introduce new products, such as phone accessories, to meet the demand of customers.

Margaret is a seasoned, skilled and experienced Kenyan entrepreneur running a mobile-transfer services and gas-cylinders business at the Kakuma Refugee Camp in Kenya. The business is strategically located to serve both the refugees and the host community conveniently.

Since starting the business, it has gained a good reputation in the camp and has a strong base of loyal customers. The business has grown considerably over the past years as a result of the ever-increasing demand for accessible mobile-money transfer services.

Margaret already had her first loan from AEC which she used to expand into the cooking gas-cylinder business. She successfully repaid the loan with ease and is now looking to getting a subsequent loan in order to increase the rotating amount of money in her mobile transactions business, as well as introduce new products, such as phone accessories, to meet the demand of customers.

This will enable her continue providing the community with more financial options, and at the same time continue providing a stable means of livelihood for her family.
