Grant update from Visionary Women’s Centre poultry project
Mutinda Kioko is a Small Business Fund “smart risks” grant recipient in Nairobi, Kenya. “I used to sell shoes. I received a grant and expanded my business. I’m happy because I can take care of all my needs and feed my kids. I buy and resell shoes. My kids dress well, I can pay rent and the landlord doesn’t bother me anymore. I’ve taught more than 10 people how to sell shoes with a small amount of money. I take them around to sell them and I teach them about pricing.”
P.S. This is my 400th blog post for Spirit in Action! Thank you for your support over the years!
