A loan of $325 helped to buy more bags of sweet potatoes and Irish potatoes.


Irene's story

Irene is married with five children and all her children go to school. She also takes care of additional family members (mother and sister's children).

She has a business stall selling Irish potatoes and sweet potatoes. She has been in this business for ten years and sells to all categories of people but on retail. She has applied for a loan of 800,000 from MCDT-SACCO to buy more bags of sweet potatoes and Irish potatoes. She doesn’t have any other income generating activity. Her major business challenges include transportation and seasonality.

She aspires to see her business grow so that she becomes a wholesaler and also to build rental rooms on her plot of land. She resides in her own house and the family has access to electricity and piped water. Her monthly expenses include rent, school fees and paying utility bills.
