Fimbo is married and lives in Kwale with his wife. Fimbo's business is buying and selling of meat goats at the market to butcher shop operators. He started his business one year ago, with a small amount of capital; he started buying goats to raise in his yard, fattening them and selling them. He is supported in this business by his wife.

Fimbo's business has gradually grown and now his main customers are not only neighbours but also restaurants and businesses that sell special meals. This helps him ensure his business' growth as they always refer new buyers to him.

Fimbo's main challenge is having enough working capital to buy more goats to increase his income. For this reason, he is requesting a Kiva loan to buy goats for resale. This will help increase his income which his family depends upon.
