Teopista's Group's story

Teopista K., 50, is a friendly and hard-working lady who has been selling produce from Kabweza Kako Trading Centre since 1974. Purchasing her produce from local farmers and selling from her stall, she is happy with her business but at times faces challenges such as the change in seasons and increased transportation costs which ultimately force her to increase the price of her produce. She is grateful that her customers stand by her throughout these difficulties, an indication of the good relationship she has with them.



Teopista is the married mother of six children, two in secondary school and the rest at the University, each also working part-time. She is now requesting a loan to purchase more produce to increase her earnings. Receiving loans has improved her life and business since she is now able to earn monthly profits ranging from 100,000 – 150,000 shillings. She has dreams of educating all her children to the University level and completing her family house.
