“I joined ASA Limited when my business was not doing well, this is because at the time of joining I could not get enough money to increase my products this made the profit low for my business, I therefore applied for KES 10000 from ASA which enabled me restock, I was able to repay back and support my small business as well. The business has since grown and I can support my family basic needs very well will less struggling financially. I hope to continue growing with ASA as a family and get bigger loan, Thank you ASA International Kenya Limited”

“ASA International Kenya Limited has done a good work in ensuring that we get money through mobile, Mpesa. The process of sending money to our mobile phone in the office is very easy and it takes short time. When we have money in our mobile it is easy to make payments to our suppliers, also having money in the mobile is secure and safe, and no one with bad intentions will know you have money. When paying instalment, it is convenient for me because I only need to have money in the mobile and through Mpesa paybill I make instalment payments”
