Richard, 35, lives in Likoni, Kenya, where he went into the business of selling fruits and vegetables four years ago as a way to earn an income. He sells his goods in the municipal market and is doing very well because he works hard and is very determined to succeed. He lives with his common-law wife and two children. Richard wants to expand his business in the future, and will use this loan to buy onions, tomatoes, cabbage, kale, bananas and other items to sell to his customers.
