Tumaini, age 25, is a married lady with no children yet. Her husband is a teacher. They live in a rental house but she says that they have plans to own a house in future.
She established her own source of income last year with the help of her husband. She manages a motorcycle. She has hired a gentleman to operate it. Tumaini is happy since it has been a profitable project.
The loan she is currently requesting is her first loan, and it is for 10,000 KES. With this loan she wants to service her motorcycle to increase its efficiency. In addition to this business, she sells khangas (traditional African print cloth), which she operates fully by herself.
She hopes to repay her loan in due time so as to request more loans. Her dream is to save funds for the anticipated children's education.
