Chidilo is 35 years old. He lives with his family in a village about six kilometers from the town of Kwale. For the past two years, Chidilo has been operating a motorcycle taxi business, working both in the town and in the rural area. He says that his job is risky because he is forced to pass through dark alleys at times. This does not deter Chidilo since he knows that he is needed to put some food on his family's table at the end of the day.

Chidilo is applying for a 50,000 KES loan to purchase spare parts for his motorcycle and conduct general service and maintenance.
