Vincent is a married man aged 37 years. He has six children aged 18, 16, 10, 9, 7 and 4 years, and out of these children only three attend school. Vincent operates a business dealing in the sale of a local brew commonly known as waragi, and it is his major source of income to look after the family. He also practices agriculture but on a smaller scale as an additional source of income.

Vicent wants a loan of 1,000,000 (one million shillings) to complete his residential house under construction so that his family can have decent living conditions. Vincent's dream is to educate his children up to high institutions of learning.

However, his major challenge is the poor road network, most especially when it rains, which makes transportation of his waragi to market very difficult.
