Weta began his sales with very little capital. In the beginning, he bought only sacks of potatoes and with those earnings he began building up a bit of capital. Today, after many years of sacrifice, he owns one of the best stocked pantries in the area.
Weta has requested a loan of KES 20,000, which he will invest in the purchase of more merchandise such as sugar, rice, flour, and oil. In the future, he wishes to construct a store for the merchandise that he sells. He is thinking of becoming a provider to the smaller stores in the region.
With this loan, he will be able to generate more earnings and save for the construction of his store.
