Nyamai earns a living designing and selling shoes in a small store that is located in a strategic place along one of the busy streets of the town of Likoni, Kenya. He is a married man responsible for caring for his beautiful wife and their single bouncing baby boy. Nyamai has been in business for the past six years and he has gained enough experience to design any shoe style his customers request. He has shown responsibility because his wife has not lacked any basic needs since they started living together. Nyamai has received many orders but he does not have enough materials to make shoes. With this requested loan, he will be able to purchase leather for making more shoes.
