Simon is a mason in Kangundo town where he constructs houses. He is 67 years old, married and has five children. He has also employed some more masons and this has enabled him to meet his clients' demands on time.

This is his second loan term and he plans to use the loan amount to buy construction materials for use. These include mortar board stands, concrete trowels and wheelbarrows. This will enable him to make the work more efficient. He will use the generated income to open a retail shop for his son.

Simon hopes to expand his masonry business to other towns in the region.
