Dennis endured much at an early age when his family was separated. When he was barely 12 years old, he began working as an assistant, setting up electrical poles. He experienced many moments of pain and anguish since he was abused at work and taken advantage of because of his innocence. Over time, he became stronger and knowledgeable in all parts of his job. Dennis now has a sense of fairness and teaches young people how to motivate themselves so that they do not have to suffer in the same manner that he had.
He is requesting a loan in order to buy a motorcycle so that he can improve his service as an electrician. This will allow him to travel without having to pay more for transportation services in order to get to his destination. Dennis dreams of using his savings to build a few rooms on his property. He would also like to start a family that he can sustain.
