Posiano is a 29-year-old man who is married with three children, aged 9, 7 and 5, who all attend school. He is into agriculture, mainly growing maize, ground nuts and cassava for both commercial and home consumption. This work provides money to look after the family and to pay the children's school fees.

Posiano would like a loan of two million shillings to buy a motorcycle, which will help him transport his produce to the market. He can also use it as a means to diversify the family earnings.

His dream is to acquire enough land to start growing on a larger scale for better harvests. His wish is to put up a permanent house for the family. But he faces challenges. Changing weather conditions affect production, and the prices for agricultural products are known to fluctuate.

In the photograph, the loan officer is pictured in a white shirt and the client Posiano is in a pink shirt. They are in the garden where Posiano's ground nuts are planted.
