A loan helped to bulk buy consumable and household canteen goods.

Mereula's story

Mereula (30) is the friendly face of a canteen business in her village of Yavulo. For 12 months, she has catered to the needs of her customers, providing basic food items, household necessities, and more.

With the increasing number of households in her village, Mereula sees a great need to also increase her canteen stocks to meet the demands of her clientele.

With the loaned money, she will do bulk buying of these essential items and also try selling few frozen foods. Mereula is a young business-driven mind and is confident that having a business as such will payoff if it is well looked after.
