Francis is a 32-year-old father of one child, aged seven years. He sells fruits and vegetables in Kangundo town. He mostly sells raw bananas, oranges, and mangoes. Vegetables include cabbages and spinach. He has been in this business for four years and it has been profitable since he has been able to provide for the needs of his family from the income he gets.
This will be Francis' third loan term and he plans to use the entire amount to buy more stocks of vegetables and fruits to sell. These include cabbages, spinach, and lettuce which are usually in high demand in the area. He also plans to buy bananas, mangoes, watermelon, paw paw, and oranges to sell. He anticipates generating more income which he will use to pay school fees for his child.
Francis hopes to expand his business by opening a big grocery store at the marketplace and, thereby, making more income.
