Japhet is dedicated to his business and he is struggling to achieve his dream of opening a retail shop in the future. His business has run out of stock and he plans to increase his inventory, so he has requested a loan of KSH 35,000 to add stock of flour, rice, paraffin, and other fast-selling products.
