Zipporah’s kiosk has been in operation for two years now in the heart of Moto village in Molo. She sells fast moving goods to her customers from both her village and the neighboring homesteads. In addition, she also makes mandazi (Swahili bun) which have become popular on the villagers’ breakfast tables for their tasty and affordable qualities.
Her earnings alongside those of her husband (who doubles up as a charcoal vendor and phone accessories salesman) enable them to raise their young family of three children, paying school fees for the two in primary school. She also rears sheep and practices small scale farming.
She is seeking $100 to be able to increase the stock of her kiosk with a goal to expand it to shop status. She desires a better life for her children and an improvement in her family’s welfare. The hardworking, humble and pleasant lady easily attracts customers to her shop due to her friendly nature. This she says is the reason she has stayed in business despite selling very few household products. With MHML’s easy and affordable loan, she is optimistic of the impact it will create in her life as well as her entire family.
