Charles gets a profit of Kshs 20,000 every month from the wholesale business. He gets additional income from running a posho mill which is in the same town as his wholesale business.

Charles' business is situated within the residential estates of Marigat with a variety of customers ranging from small shops, hotels and supermarkets. This loan will be used to increase the stock in his shop.
