Nelson lives in Kaloleni where he has a grocery store. He chose this activity because he saw the need for one in his vicinity. Nelson is single and wants to move forward to prosper in the future and in preparation of his better living with his family when he gets married.
Nelson started with a small amount of capital he saved through casual wages. With this small sum he started his business, buying only snacks, soft drinks, sweets, and flour. He gradually increased his products according to the demand of his customers. He feels satisfied that thanks to this business, he has been able to cover the expenses for himself and help his parents. Nelson is requesting a loan to increase his inventory by purchasing stocks of flour, rice, sugar, and other small, fast-selling goods. His goal for the future is to have a bigger store. Nelson also has a motorcycle taxi which is operated by his brother.
