Juma is a married man with seven children, all of whom attend school. He owns a house that has electricity and piped water. His greatest monthly expense is school fees.
For over five years, Juma has operated a boda boda (motorcycle) transport business, operating from door to door serving town dwellers and neighbors. He mentioned that during rainy season it becomes hard to operate his business, and hence he earns a low income.
With the requested loan of KES 100,000, Juma wants to purchase two motorcycles for his transport business. He dreams of expanding his business to earn more profits in the future.
