John is a 46-year-old married man. He has four children with ages ranging from 12 to 23 years. He describes himself to be committed. He operates a butchery where he sells meat.
He has been involved in this business for 10 years. His business is located in a strategic place and his primary customers are local consumers.
He describes his biggest business challenge to be inadequate funds to buy more stock of meat to sell in his butchery. He will use the KES 80,000 loan to add stock of meat in his butchery. His business goal is to be able to sell in wholesale within five years. He hopes that in the future, he will create employment and open more butcheries. This is his third loan with SMEP DTM. His previous loan of KES 50,000 was repaid successfully.
