In the small village of Mwambalazi, we found Salim living with his family; his wife and their seven children. Both of them have been engaged in farming for the last two years. They grow a variety of fruits and vegetables and he sells them both from home and at the market. Salim has requested a loan so as to invest into his newly established vegetable stall. He sells vegetables and fruits that include tomatoes, bananas, kale, etc. With the loan, he will be able to purchase onions, tomatoes, kale, and other fruits and vegetables to stock his stall. By doing this, he will continue to provide fresh products to his customers.
