Emily Nasimiyu is a pleasant and hardworking business lady who sells fruits and tomatoes in Molo’s main market. She has practiced the trade for the last ten years and is not about to stop any time soon.
The profits from this business enable her to take care of her family as she is a single mother. Her three children in university, high school and primary school all depend on this business for their school fees.
The oranges from her stall are on very high demand due to their good quality and juicy sweetness. She gets her supply from Busia in western Kenya and Molo. She also supplies to other traders besides her other customers who buy for their own domestic consumption. In addition she also receives tenders to supply oranges to a school in Molo once in a while.
She is seeking $150 from Moto Hope Micro-Lending to be able to increase her stock of oranges now that the availability in the market is dwindling and the prices have shot up. With increased stock, she will be able to meet the demand of her customers in Molo and its environs and enjoy higher profits from the raised prices.
