Billy is 44 and lives with his four children, aged 18, 10, 6, and 3, who are all still in school. He earns a living from his restaurant, which offers different services, including serving breakfast and lunch foods such as tamales, eggs, beans, soups, meat dishes, and salads; the restaurant also offers accommodation. He has been running the business for a number of years and has gained plenty of sales experience, which allows him to make bigger profits and expand his customer base.
Billy plies his trade in a coastal region, which he considers very favorable for his business, and he is well known throughout the region for preparing the most delicious dishes in the area and providing affordable accommodation for all. His greatest assets are hard work and love of the job which, he knows, are the only ways to achieve his ambition.
Due to his increased number of customers, Billy wishes to expand his restaurant. He has requested a loan of 100,000 KSH.
