Rahab balances a happy little girl( her grand daughter)on her lap as she pleasantly serves the customers that keep streaming to her stand. She is strategically located at the market entrance to easily attract customers and passers by.
She has a very colorful and healthy looking display of oranges and tomatoes that she sells at very pocket friendly prices. She sells the fruits that are in season for easier availability from her suppliers. She is currently selling oranges as she awaits the mango season that is fast approaching.
For the last ten years, she has practiced this trade and raised her son from its profits. Her suppliers are in Nakuru town and she buys in bulk to enjoy economies of scale. Her customers include other market traders who strive the moment she arrives to get the best from her to sell to their own customers in the same market as she does. A long time in the business and her excellent customer care skills have won her the loyalty of customers who leave within Molo as well as its environs.
She is seeking $100 from Moto Hope Micro-Lending to be able to increase her oranges stock and be able to buy mangoes that are soon to be in season. The success and stability of this business ensure that she has resources to provide for herself and her family and she desires to see it scale up.
