Phoebe's Vision to Help Young People
It has been a struggle, but Phoebe sits proudly in her three by three metre tailoring shop in a busy market in Kariobangi, northeast Nairobi. Every day, she wakes up at 5am, prays, has her breakfast and heads to work. By 6:30, her shop is open and she begins sewing garments.
VisionFund Kenya is a Christian owner-operated mission-driven microfinance network working with caregivers in hard to reach, impoverished locations so they can create secure futures for their children. Inspired by Christian values, we are dedicated to working with the most vulnerable families and communities regardless of religion, race, ethnicity gender, to create lasting change in their lives.
VisionFund serves low income clients living in vulnerable and rural communities by offering financial and livelihood solutions, delivered through our Network, World Vision and partners; empowering families to create income and jobs; and unlocking economic potential for communities to thrive. The products and services offered fall into five broad categories: microloans, savings programmes, microinsurance, training and education. Benefits include sustainable livelihoods, increased economic well-being, improved community well-being, decreased dependence on outside aid and restoration of hope and dignity.
Together with World Vision, we are focused on ending extreme poverty by 2030.
