Transform Lives in Kenya with Microloans

by Opportunity International
Dec 14, 2011

Program Updates

Opportunity Kenya currently serves 7,796 families with microloans and transformative training, a 6% increase from the end of 2010. It has been a year since Opportunity Kenya launched loan disbursements via cell phone banking, which brings clients increased convenience, flexibility and security. Opportunity Kenya began piloting loan repayments using cell phones at the Kawangware branch in Nairobi in June. This service aims to increase security by eliminating the need for clients and loan officers to carry cash to Trust Group meetings.
