Martin is a married man with three children, all of whom attend school. He lives in a rental house that has electricity and piped water. His greatest monthly expenses are school fees and rent bills.

For the past three years, he has operated a bicycle-repair business. His potential customers are cyclists in his area. Competition is one of the major challenges Martin faces, because of similar business operators in his area. He dreams of expanding and establishing a motorcycle spare-parts shop in the future.
