Now, Jane is comfortably making a healthy profit of Kshs 300-400 every day, thanks to expanding her stock and selling products such as fruit, crisps and fries. This is her only source of income so she doesn’t live a life of dreams, though her profit margins are enough to cover the rent and basic living costs. If the charity continues with its success, a bigger loan of Kshs 40,000 would enable her to put a cover over her stand, to protect it from the wind and rain.
Coinadrink are extremely passionate about charity work, and we always try and help out whenever we can. That’s why were absolutely delighted when we hear of success stories thanks to our good work, and it drives us to continue in the same manner for the future.
We have been contributing towards a group of ladies going under the name Ladies for a Better Life, doing so through the sales of our bottled water for our bottled water coolers. These women, based in the Western parts of Kenya, face the issue of poverty on a day to day basis and such a challenge brings a long list of issues that nobody should have to confront.
Collectively they have aimed to improve their livelihood by running small scale businesses, drawing inspiration from the name of the group as they strive to make a real go of it. Such troubling circumstances for these women can sometimes get them down, but the positive attitude on a whole is simply wonderful.
