Vincent Apari Nyoka is a vibrant young man who believes in the power of planning, setting goals and working to achieve them. The young 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 ensures that he catches 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 together to improve the welfare of their young family of one child.
Vincent is seeking $200 from Moto Hope Micro Lending to purchase additional stock for his kiosk. At the moment the demand is way above supply at the kiosk. The many customers he has now won over to the business can no longer meet all of their needs at the kiosk they have come to love and trust and he is eager to rectify this, improve the sales and scale.
