If a business is too small to interest a mainstream lender how can it raise the funding it needs to grow?
That's the challenge Faulu, our Kenyan microfinance business, works to overcome. Carolyne Chelegat, a typical customer, is a market trader selling peanuts.

Customers love the new products and business is good, enabling her to provide for her family and her community.
