Juma is a single man who owns a house that has electricity but not piped water. His greatest monthly expense is food.
For the past year, he has operated a retail shop business, selling household consumables like wheat flour, rice, and cooking oil. He cites theft and competition as his major challenges.
Juma is requesting Kshs 20,000 to boost his kiosk, purchase bundles of wheat flour, maize flour, tea leaves and cooking fat oil. He dreams of expanding to a wholesale shop in the near future.
