Mulwa lives in the coastal region of Kenya with his family - his wife and their four children. For the last 10 years, Mulwa has operated a clothes-selling business, selling used bed sheets. He is a dedicated man who is devoted to his job, despite the various adversaries he at times passes through. He sells his merchandise at the market. Mulwa says that his customers have requested a variety of sheets but he does not have enough capital to cater to these needs. For this reason then, he is asking for a loan to buy bales of used clothes for sale. He hopes to increase his sales even as he continues to pay for the household expenses.
