Mupa, 38, lives in Tiribe kwale county, a town in a coastal part of Kenya. She is married with four children, ages 14,12,10 and 8, who are all in school. She has a small store selling basic staple goods and snacks near a place of work. She has been selling from this store for the last five years, thereby enabling her to gain a wide variety of customers, thanks to her social and jovial way of interacting with them, generating good profits.
Due to a wide range of consumers there is a need to expand her business by buying larger amounts of products for her store to stock it with everything necessary; for example, cooking oil, wheat flour and sugar. She has therefore approached with a loan request of KES 20,000. She is grateful for such an opportunity.
