Popchin is a married woman. She and her husband have two children: one is 5 years old, while the other is 9 years old. She describes herself as a hardworking and intelligent woman.

To earn a living, she operates a food retail store, where she sells food items such as cereals, maize, beans, green gram, and millet. She has been involved in this business for six years. Her business is located near a busy bus station, so her primary customers are passengers and daily consumers. She describes her biggest business challenge to be her low bargaining power and competition within the area.

She is seeking this loan in the amount of 60,000 KES to buy more maize, beans, black beans, green gram, and millet to re-sell to her customers. Her business goal is to expand her business within five years. Notably, this would be her third loan with SMEP DTM.
