Simon O. A. is thirty-three years old, married, and has two children aged seven and three years old. His business is located at Majengo market in Mombasa, Kenya.

Mombasa is the coastal region of Kenya and is well-known for its many many tourist attraction sites, not forgetting the Indian Ocean's white beaches. He has been selling fish for ten years to the local people. He says that this business is profitable and the major challenge he has is storage. Fish is highly perishable. However, he works very hard to keep his business doing well.

He is using his loan of Kes 40,000 to buy more fish to expand his business. He hopes to own a room with a refrigeration facility where he can store fish. He is a very hard-working man.
