but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy more stock of potatoes, tomatoes, cabbages and other items.
Naomi is a married woman. She has two children aged 10 years and 12 years. She describes herself as ambitious. She operates a retail business where she sells potatoes, tomatoes, cabbages, and onions. She has been involved in this business for seven years. Her business is located in a busy area and her primary customers are locals. She describes her biggest business challenge to be the high cost of goods. Naomi will use the 60,000 KES loan to buy more stock of potatoes, tomatoes, cabbages and other items. Her business goal is to be a supplier to other retailers within five years. She hopes that in the future, she will be able to educate her children. This is her third loan with SMEP Microfinance Bank. Her previous loan was repaid successfully.
