Kadongo is a father of five children, four of whom are enrolled in school. He operates a retail shop and has been doing so for the past ten years. His primary customers are the local residents.
He aspires to expand his shop to a wholesale operation in the future, and he describes food and school fees as his greatest monthly expenses. Kadongo lives in his own house that has electricity but no piped water. High market competition is his major challenge.
With the loan of 50,000 KES, he will be able to add stocks of maize flour, wheat flour, sugar, and cooking fat.
