The fuss about Avocados throughout the country is not about to die any time soon. Flawless slices of well ripened, spotless avocados continue to litter social media pages with Kenyans hailing the fruit. In Molo’s main market, Everlyne Kerubo is the custodian of the most appealing and tantalizing of the fruit and the traders and other domestic consumers who frequent her business to buy them are evidence of this.
The mother of five school going children has sold avocados, tomatoes and onions for the last ten years, at the same spot in Molo’s main market. She attracts customers from far and wide due to her good quality stock and her calm and pleasant nature. She is very friendly and has made friends with her regular customers purposing to serve them with love and care thus retained them and earned more with each passing day.
Her husband practices farming growing maize and potatoes for sale upon harvest as well as for their own family’s domestic consumption. The combined proceeds from the couple’s ventures are what enable them to pay for the tuition fees of their five school going children as well as their rent, bills and basic needs.
She is seeking $100 from Moto Hope Micro-Lending to be able to afford more stock in order to meet the increased demand for her wares especially avocados. With the money she will be able to buy more from a wide range of best avocado, onion and tomato suppliers as well as buy directly from farmers so as to enjoy better prices.
