Kellen Started Her Dream Business!

By Cassandra Jones | Communication Manager

Kellen In Her Retail Shop
Kellen In Her Retail Shop

71-year-old Kellen lives with her two biological grandchildren whose mother died after many years of battling an illness. To help care for her grandchildren, Kellen was able to benefit from microfunds. Thanks to the funds her granny group received, Kellen was able to borrow 500,000 Ugandan Shillings ($141.07) that she used to start a retail business in her community’s trading center. Kellen always had a dream of starting a small retail shop to sell produce and charcoal since finding firewood in her community was a big challenge to many. After some consideration, Kellen decided to start her small retail shop and only sell charcoal because she was not able to physically keep an active farm. The success of her business has allowed her to repay her loan ontime and the rent where she operates her retail shop. Kellen doesn’t regret anything since starting her business!
