Using Pocket Money to Start a Business, Kenya

Feb 25, 2020

Phanice Nanjala from Narok, Kenya is a recent Form Four graduate and 2019 LEI participant. With the knowledge she gained from these programs, Phanice began to save her pocket money after finishing her Form Four last November. She saved 5000 Kenyan Shillings (KSh) and, with the help of a small donation from her mother, used 2500 KSh to open a stand where she sells vegetables and fruits. She makes a profit between 300 KSh and 500 KSh depending on how busy her stand is. Now, with the information she has learned from Asante Africa Foundation’s programming, Phanice is able to fully sustain herself with the money she makes from her stand!
