Old Mutual Story
From little things bigger things can grow

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. Faulu gave her six weeks business training and a series of affordable micro-loans. These enabled her to increase her stock and buy machines to make peanut flour - and now, peanut butter. Customers love the new products and business is good, enabling her to provide for her family and her community.
