Elijah's story

Elijah O. is a married man. His wife takes care of the household chores while Elijah goes out to run their motorcycle business. They have an eight-year-old daughter whom they hope to give good education to the university level. His business is located at Kisumu.

Kisumu is a region in Kenya known for the production of fish. It harbours Lake Victoria and is commonly known as the Lake Basin. Elijah has been in the transport business for seven years and has twelve employees. He says that this business is profitable and the major challenge he has is theft. Thugs pretend to be customers and on their way to the destination they rob the person rendering the service. However, he works very hard to keep his business doing well.

He is using his loan of Kes 50,000 to buy another motorcycle to grow his business. In future, he plans to grow his transport business still more. He hopes to buy rickshaws and later vehicles. He describes himself as a visionary man.
