Salim is a resident of Malindi, Kenya. He is married and owns a transport business. The motorcycle transport is a major business opportunity in the region due to the lack of good road networks in most areas. He purchased the motorcycle with his savings.

Salim is applying for a loan of 30,000 Kenya shillings to repair the motorcycle and also to help him start another business. He looks forward to owning a three-wheeler vehicle in the near future or to purchase a taxi or van for transport.

The challenges facing Salim’s current business are the seasonal business climate and the overall inflation, which has reduced the purchasing power of most customers.
