Abudu is 38 years old, a resident of the city outskirts and married with four children, in addition to taking care of two widows and their children by providing them with basic needs since they lost their husbands (his brothers).
Abudu drives a taxi to earn a living. He started this job in 2004 after failing to find formal employment and yet he had to meet the growing needs of his family. Abudu mainly deals in town service transportation.
Abudu’s dream is to have his own taxi so that he will be able to earn higher income such that he can provide the best for his family and also start up small businesses for his late brothers’ wives.
His major challenge is working for people who do not pay him well which makes it hard for him to adequately meet his family needs. He also did not have enough money to purchase a taxi of his own. He therefore needs a loan to help him top up the money he has to purchase a taxi. Abudu is very hardworking and honest according to his colleagues.
