Martin's story

Martin is a married man with five children. All of his kids attend school, which is the reason that he works so hard. He owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water.

Martin has operated a vegetable stall business from home for the past five years, selling to passers-by and neighbors. He cited seasonality and theft as his greatest challenges.

With the 40,000 KES he wants to purchase sacks of vegetables, potatoes, tomatoes and onions. His dream is to see his children get a better education and become important people in the society.
