Hamadi is a married man with three children, all of whom attend school. He owns a house that has electricity but not piped water. His greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.
Hamadi has operated his video show library for the past six years. The members of the neighboring community are his potential customers. Hamadi faces a major challenge of seasonality in his business. When schools are open he gets fewer customers visiting his video library while during holiday season many customers visit the video library.
With the Kshs 20,000 loan Hamadi wants to purchase a big screen and a video player. In the future he hopes to open a bigger hall where he can show films.
