Derickson, 31, lives alone in a rental house in the town of Samburu. He is a single visionary man. He’s been managing his carpentry shop for five years. He learned how to manage the shop with his father, who taught him to make wood furniture. He currently works in it full-time.

He’s requesting loans to buy several types of wood, such as olive, cedar and pine, to increase inventory and have on hand things he needs. This will help him to do his work with no setbacks.

His hope is to expand the shop into a large salesroom.
