Dennis lives in the coastal town of Mariakani, Kenya. The area is located along the road linking two Kenyan cities and is often visited by many traders. Dennis is the father of two children. He runs a transport business; he owns a motorcycle which he uses to transport people and goods. The regions around the area lack a reliable road network and motorcycles provide a convenient means to travel for business errands. Dennis was previously employed, saved money and moved on to start the business.
Dennis was introduced to Milango by a friend and is applying for a loan of 41,850 Kenya shillings (KES) to purchase another motorcycle. Dennis believes the income from this loan will help him meet his family's needs. His future ambition is to own a motorcycle spare parts shop.
