David is 40 years old and married with six children, five of whom are in school and still young. He is in the brick making business. He works 6 hours a day, 6 days a week.

David will use the loan to hire laborers to burn his bricks because he expects many people to buy during this season. He will also put some money in tree planting because he requires wood for burning his bricks.

He hopes that in the future, with support, he can modernize the method of burning these bricks and also use modern ways of brick making instead of human labor, which is time consuming and expensive.

David's business faces several challenges. During rainy seasons his business is affected by weather. Also, sometimes there is high demand but he cannot produce enough to meet the demand. David says that with this money, he will employ many people to boost his performance in this business.
