Eriya is 37 years old, married and with three children who are all school-going. He is a motorcyclist, a business he is operating as a major source of income. In addition to that, Eriya operates a video cinema hall and does phone charging to get additional income to cater for the family. He started all this after dropping out of school because his parents failed to raise tuition fees.

He wants a loan of 500,000 (five hundred thousand shillings) to buy a small solar system to boost his business because they have a challenge of electricity in their village. He hopes by expanding the business, he will be in position to improve the living standards of the family and also put up a permanent residential house and pay tuition for his children.

Eriya is a hardworking man and hope that very soon he will get other loan products like school fees because he always has difficulty with raising the money. In the photo is Eriya with a Ugafode credit officer who had gone to appraise him.
