A loan of $300 helped to buy more chickens.


Joseph's story

Joseph is a 32-year-old married man. He has four children with ages ranging from three to twelve years. He describes himself to be sociable and talkative.

For the past four years Joseph has sold chickens. He has one employee. His business is in an urban setting, and his primary customers are local residents. A lack of money to improve his trade is his biggest business challenge.

Joseph is requesting a 25,000 KES loan from SMEP to buy more chickens. His goal, though, is to run a hotel within five years. He wants to educate his children using the profits generated from his business.
