Joyce lives with her husband in Kawangware, Kenya where she runs a carpentry shop and furniture business. She always worked hard to support her two children, but after paying their school fees and daily expenses, she struggled to invest in her business’s growth. Oftentimes, she could not fulfill her customers’ orders because she could not afford the raw materials. Now, her children are grown, but she is more determined than ever to help her business grow.
Joyce joined an Opportunity International Trust Group where she received valuable financial training, and she plans on using her loan to purchase raw materials in bulk. Joyce is confident that she will be able to complete her customers’ orders and become more profitable with Opportunity’s support. She has hired three employees to help at her business, and she hopes to create more jobs in her community in the future.
