Hanna Wambui Kuria is a well known shopkeeper in Mitume area of Kitale town. She is very sociable and her motherly nurturing nature easily wins over the hearts of the young and old alike. She has run the shop for four years now and hasn’t lost the energy she started off with back in 2016. She still wakes up at dawn to open up her shop for the early birds even before many shops on her block are open. She has kept to the routine on opening up early and locking up late in the night and serving her customers with utmost dedication. This has made her easily reliable and dependable by customers who are loyal shoppers at her shop. She stocks fast moving goods demanded by her customers and is very apt in restocking to make sure her customers never lack whatever they demand.
Hanna is seeking $300 from Moto Hope Micro Lending to boost the stock of her shop. With the global pandemic of covid-19, many people are shying away from traveling to Kitale town kilometers away to shop due to fear of exposure to the virus and are more comfortable shopping as close to home as possible. This phenomenon has led to a rise in the demand for the goods she stocks and she is all to eager to satisfy her customers. She is the sole bread winner of her family and works very hard to make sure her two children stay in school as well as have a roof over their heads and food on their tables. She is teaching the children early in life the value of honest work and who better to use as a role model than herself?
With the loan she will be able to purchase the fast moving essential goods that are on high demand at the moment and which she is sure will continue to be for as long as the pandemic will last. Buying from wholesalers will allow her to enjoy good prices which will in turn help her to gain more profits. Her goal is to expand her business and she is making steps towards just that, one day at a time. Her joy is to see the welfare of her children improved and ensure that they never lack.
