For ten years now Mr. Peter Nderu has successfully run his mutton/chevon/beef butchery in Molo town. He is popularly known as Pastor to his customers who include his church (The Community of the Crucified one) members as well as every loyal customer he has retained all these years. Moto Hope Micro-Lending loaned him $300 to increase his stock. He now sells at least 20-30kgs of meat daily. “I had a difficult family medical engagement that threatened to drain all of my savings and close my business. MHML enabled my business to get back to its feet.”
Mr. Peter Nderu’s business after the boost is now able to provide for his nuclear and extended family. He has four school going children and one wife. He also takes care of his mother in law’s cancer treatment costs as well as help the needy members of his church. He is now expanding his business by proving a wider variety of products. He has started selling groceries: spices, vegetables, pumpkins and arrowroot, that he discovered are in high demand and have so far recorded high turnover. In his plans is a small kitchen behind his butchery that he intends to start making soup to sell to his clients.
He says he has maintained a good share of customers in the very competitive butchery business because he sells good quality soft meat and is honest. He says he has mastered the art of language. He knows how to speak to his clients. Another aspect that has assured his clout in the market is the fact that he also sells on credit to customers of unquestionable credit-worthiness.
Mr. Peter is available to his customers and opens shop as early as 6.45am. I am pleased to see his business records which he started keeping after attending the Moto Hope Micro-lending Business Development Training of February 2018 at Moto Hope Academy. He was one of the most active participants during the training and I am not surprised to see how he has adapted the healthy business behavior that was taught on the day. Mr. Peter Nderu is a man with a purpose to serve the people around him.
