Bakari, 53, is married and has 5 children. He lives in a community in the town of Tiribe, in the coastal region of Kenya.
Bakari decided to start up his own business selling charcoal three years ago.
At this time, he has requested a loan of 20,000 KES. He plans to use these funds to buy more sacks of charcoal for sale.
Bakari hopes that his business will grow with this financial support. Also, he will be able to have better customer service, as he will have enough stock available to meet the demand.
Bakari's goal is to have a prosperous future.
