Grace animatedly sorts out her shiny red ripe healthy looking tomatoes as she throws them about into their size assigned corners. This activity considering that all the tomatoes are in one large pile on her stall is a technique only she finds useful. The sweltering mid day sun has nothing on her. She wipes the sweat on her brow with the edge of her leso and keeps going while amusing her customers with her never ending tales of current affairs. She is a vibrant business lady and she is well known in the market for the tomatoes she sells. She has been in this business for the last five years and knows her customers by name she says.
The secret to selling the best quality tomatoes she indicates is making it clear to your suppliers what kind you can accept from them and what you will not. It is never compromising on health and maintaining good quality. She buys directly from farmers in the outskirts of Molo town and has a variety of farmers to pick from. This way, she is able to pick only the best. She is so aggressive and determined that the down times that her business has had in the recent past have not stopped her from forging forward.
The mother of four children is eager to see her business prosper to enable her pay school fees and cater for all of her family’s needs. Her inquisitive nature made her aware of Moto Hope Micro Lending’s affordable credit which she badly needs at the moment. She is seeking $100 from MHML to be able to afford her next stock. With MHML funding, she will comfortably repay the loan while taking home the larger percentage of the profits made.
