Mwarabu's story

Mwarabu lives at his own house that neither has electricity nor piped water. His greatest monthly expense is food for the family.

For the past five years, he has operated a food stall business, selling from home to his neighbours and passersby. His potential customers are neighbours and passersby. He faces a major challenge of seasonality in his business.

With the loan that he is requesting of Kes 50,000, he wants to purchase stock of wheat flour, maize flour, and beans.
