Lindah from Eldoret, Kenya

I need help starting a clothing business to support my family!

I need $250 to get my clothing business off the ground.


I am a 24 year old mother of two beautiful boys. I've suffered through two fistulas. During labor, I lost so much blood that I was on the verge of death. I aspire to go to the Kenya Medical Training College and talk to them about childbirth with the knowledge that I have. I never would've had a second fistula if back then, I knew what I know today. I would love to go back to school but I can't because I have a newborn baby and my mother is sick.

My goals are to start a clothing business. I want to buy and resell clothes at the market.

I need $250 to get my clothing business off the ground.

Meeting this need will help me because I need to support my two kids and hopefully I will make enough money to eventually be able to put myself through school.
