Christopher Owino's story

Christopher, 24, is married and has a 9 month-old child. He is a hard-working man who earns income operating a motorbike taxi (called a piki piki by the locals) in Kisumu, Kenya. However, he currently has to lease a motorcycle which costs a lot, leaving little profit. Even if he does not get much business on a given day, Christopher has to pay the fee to the motorbike owner. He therefore dreams of being able to save enough to afford his own motorbike, so that he can keep all the money he makes from his business. Christopher already has decided on a particular model available at a downtown retail store, and will use his loan to make a down-payment. Christopher is extremely excited about the work that K-MET is doing and wants to recruit new members so that they can benefit from K-MET's work in the community.
