For the last fifteen years, Elizabeth has known no other trade but selling second hand clothes in Kitale town. She has specialized in stocking blouses for her female clientele whose loyalty she has created and maintained over the years that she has been in the business. She purchases her stock from Eldoret town where she has suppliers who know and stock exactly what her customers demand. Back home in Kitale, her customers enjoy the best qualities and variety of trending styles from what she stocks.
She maintains them by not only stocking the best at affordable prices, but also by allowing them to purchase on credit. If anything, the years dealing with the customers have taught her the values of honesty and trust. The single mother of one school going child is motivated by her family’s needs. She is able to pay for her daughter’s school fees with proceeds from the business as well as provide all of their basic needs and upkeep.
She is seeking $300 from Moto Hope Micro Lending to buy new stock from Eldoret second hands clothes market. This added to the slow moving stock she currently has will bring into the stall the traffic she is sure to attract seeing as the holidays and festive season is here and demand is known to be at its peak. She foresees a very high sales season and we wish her the best.
