A loan of $500 helps to restock his shop to sell to his customers for business growth.

Benson Ocheng's story

Benson is a middle aged man who is happily married. To meet his family's basic needs, he operates a retail shop. He loves his business because when he is at it he is able to interact with his customers well.

He looks forward to interacting with his customers well because they lift his spirits up to do so. Establishing a rapport with his clients has seen his business grow.

He is humbly requesting a loan to stock his business, which will enable him to make more sales. He plans to pay back his loan using the profits he makes from his business.

His dream is to have a stable business and to take his children to the university.

This loan is special because:

It gives financial access to low income micro-entrepreneurs.
