Mure, 35, is married and living with his spouse and five children in the suburban of Kaloleni, Kenya. He has always been a merchant. For a time he sold farm produce, and over five years ago decided to open a small grocery store selling foodstuffs and miscellany. He sells various items, including basic grains, canned goods, cleaning supplies, eggs, sweets, dairy products, rice, etc.
Mure has requested a 30,000 KES loan to stock his store with flour, sugar, rice, and other small, fast selling items. With this investment he will increase his inventory and sales. His plans are to open a bigger shop so that he will be able to improve his income and his family’s quality of life this way.
