Vincent Apari is a vibrant young man of 24 years who believes in the power of planning, setting goals and working to achieve them. The father of one is working hard to make sure his family can afford basic needs as well as be as comfortable as possible. Vincent is a restaurant employee in Kitale town by night and a shopkeeper at his retail kiosk by day. In between, he makes sure to catch enough hours of rest to remain fit to carry out his roles.
For the last one year, the kiosk has served them well affording them groceries and some of their bills. There is a big difference in their financial basket compared to when the couple only depended on one income from what he earned at the restaurant. Whenever he is away working in town his wife steps in to keep the sales going at the kiosk. This has brought a lot of fulfillment to her she says for she feels very useful as opposed to when she was not engaged in any economic activities. They are now able to plan together and work as a close knit team to improve the welfare of their young family of one child.
Moto Hope Micro Lending loaned Vincent $200 which enabled him to purchase additional stock for his kiosk at a time when demand for the fast moving goods that he stocks was way above supply and he risked losing customers. The many customers he had won over to the business could no longer meet all of their needs at the kiosk they had come to love and trust and he was desperate to rectify that, improve sales and scale.
He was not ready to lose even a single one of them for it had taken a lot of work and skill to gain them in the first place. With the money he jumped back into full activity and is gradually and steadily scaling. The customers who would previously rather buy nothing at all and move to the next shop when even a single item on their shopping list was missing in the kiosk stock can now get all their small fast moving goods at Vincent’s kiosk. His projection this year is to expand his business and double the sales and he has chosen Moto Hope Micro Lending as his trusted financial partner.
