Mary Wanjiku is a pleasant business lady with commendable convincing power. She easily charms potential clients that ply the main road where her cereals shop is set. She has sold cereal grains, among them;beans, green grams, nuts and rice all of a wide variety for four years now and is not about to close shop any time soon. As a matter of fact she would very much love to expand her venture.
She has gained loyal customers over the years in business due to the good quality cereals that she trades and her excellent customer care skills. She buys her products from wholesalers in Nakuru town to sell to her buyers in Molo, providing them with varieties that they don’t plant in their small holder farms as well as feeding the non-farming population in the agricultural town of Molo.
Her business has enabled her to bring something to the table back at home and her husband and herself have contributed from their separate ventures and bought the land on which their home sits as well as cater for their needs. She is also a small holder farmer and uses her produce for their own domestic consumption.
She is seeking $200 from Moto Hope Micro-Lending to be able to purchase stock in higher bulk than she currently does. Competition is stiff and she is focused on differentiating her products with favorable prices and the highest quality. With the money, she will be in a position to keep her business in gainful operation and cater for the basic needs of her two children one of whom is already in school.
