Alex rents a small room in the city suburbs of Kampala where he stays with one of the boys. The rest of the children stay in the village with their mother because the cost of living in Kampala is too high for the family. Alex is employed in the transport business and rides a motorcycle ferrying passengers to different destinations. This has been his source of livelihood for the past few years.
Alex now wants to acquire a motorcycle of his own, which will help him increase his daily income, meet the children's school fees requirements and provide for their other basic living expenses. He is requesting a $1,200 loan to purchase a new motorcycle. He will be able to repay the loan in a period of 7months
