John W. is a happily married father of two. After learning how to repair vehicles, he started his own garage in the outskirts of town. He wanted to become an entrepreneur so that he could take care of his family and siblings.

He has been in this business for over seven years now and has hired three staff members on a casual basis. From the income earned from this business, he has managed to open a spare parts shop, which is currently run by his wife. Competition and price undercutting in the area has been a great challenge for his business. Consequently, he is requesting for kshs. 80,000, which he will use to purchase more spare parts.
