Michael is a married man from the village of Mwambalazi, Kenya. He drives a motorcycle taxi, and has worked as a taxi driver for ten years. He started his business thinking of his own progress and that of his family.
He remarks that his job is very difficult, and during the rainy season it is more difficult since he has fewer passengers because it is cold. His dream is to buy more motorcycles to work, and thus progress on every day.
He is asking for the loan to buy replacement parts for his motorcycle taxi, since it is an essential part of his job. He is happy with the opportunity that he is receiving.
