A loan of $600 helped to buy more clothes to sell.

Daniel's story

Daniel is a 47-year-old married man. He has four children with ages ranging from 7 years to 19 years. He describes himself as extremely committed.

He operates a retail store where he sells clothes. He has been involved in this business for 12 years. His business is located in an area of good potential and his primary customers are regular customers.

He describes his biggest business challenge as the low season. He will use the KES 50,000 loan to buy more clothes to sell.

He hopes that, in the future, he will have a business that satisfies his family's needs.

This is his second loan with SMEP DTM. A previous loan of KES 20,000 was repaid successfully. He will use the anticipated profits to improve the living standards of his family.
