Herbert is an energetic young man aged 25 residing in Nyamitanga, a suburb in Mbarara municipality, western Uganda. He is a former street kid who does not know his parents but out of his hard work he managed to get a well wisher who trained him in motorcycle mechanics and repairs. He has managed to earn a living and survive.

He now operates a mini mechanical workshop repairing the old motorcycles used by the poor people to survive. He has a challenge of a lack of spare parts, so he is requesting a loan of 800,000 UGX to purchase spare parts to help him with the repairs of such motorcycles so that he can boost his business as well as improving the standard of living for him and his customers.
