Juma's story

Juma is a very determined man who is fully dedicated to his business and running his retail shop. It has produced good results and he works hard to see it expand. Juma tell us that he used his previous loan to fully invest in his shop.

Thanks to the support given he has been able to increase his sales. Stock has gone down and he wants to increase his inventory, however, he does not have enough capital to reach his goals. He is requesting another loan in the amount of KES 40,000 to add more stock of rice, bales of flour, sodas, and other small items like sweets. He still focuses on his dream of owning a wholesale business.
