Daniel, 35, has five children. He lives with his spouse and children in the town of Tiribe, Kenya. He has been operating a tailoring business for the last two months; he previously worked as a mason. He is very optimistic and hopes to earn a good income, because there is not much competition in his area. This is one of the reasons that he started this business. To improve his production, he’s asking for a 15,000 KES loan to buy fabric, thread, elastic, lace, and other items to make garments. He will be able to increase his production and sales with this investment. His goal is to work hard so that his children will have a quality education and to have enough money to make some home improvements.
