William Amollo Osore has the expert-level skill of cutting and preserving meat which attracts many customers to his fabulous butchery in Kibuye Market in Kisumu. The 49-year-old man has been in the business for the last 20 years and looks forward to the next 20 years.
But what helped his business grow and become so successful? In 2009 William first learned about the opportunity to receive a loan to grow his business. From his humble beginnings, he knew and understood the importance of saving so he could access loans to expand his business. With this, William was able to take out a loan and expand his business production.
“Yawezekana is the best SACCO around because of their timely loans and integrity of the officers,” he says as he wielded the cleaver to strike through the bones. “I plan to save more so that I can reach a higher target, and receive an even larger loan in the future”.
Fast forward to today, William has managed to payback and clear his first loan but has yet to apply for another one.
