Mwinyi is 40 years old and lives in his own house with his wife and their two children, who are in school. He owns a kiosk to earn a living and provide necessities for him family. He sells items that meet major family requirements, including foodstuffs, cereals, greens, and utensils. He has been doing this for some years and so has a lot of experience and some regular customers who come to him every day. He has a strategic location for the business, and it is also worth mentioning that there is not much competition. His dream is for his children to have a better life than he has had. Every day he wakes up early to earn the necessary money to bring fresh greens from the nearby market, and he wants to keep his business going for a long time, as it is his principal source of income. So, to do this, he decided to apply for a loan of KES 25,000, so he can expand his stall and restock necessary supplies, such as flour, sugar, milk, margarine, greens and cereals. He believes that, only by doing this, will he manage to realize his dream of giving his family better living conditions.
