John is a 53-year-old married man. He has four children with ages ranging from 1 year to 17 years. He describes himself as honest.
He operates a farm where he sells tomatoes. He has been involved in this business for two years and employs one staff member. His business is located in a densely populated area and his primary customers are residents.
He says his biggest business challenge is insufficient funds for building a bigger greenhouse for the tomatoes. He will use the KES 100,000 loan to buy chemicals, fertilizers and seeds.
His business goal is to own many greenhouses growing different types of crops within five years. He hopes that in the future, he will use the profits generated to educate his children.
