Robert is a 39-year-old married man with four children. He is a self-employed businessman who deals in rental houses. He has a number of rental rooms and has been in this business for over 13 years.

Robert has applied for 5,000,000 (five million shillings), which he wants to use to complete the floors and paint the interior of his rental apartments (shown in the photo), so that he can get tenants to move in.

He plans to use the income that will be collected from the new rental units to pay back the loan and use the savings to build more rooms. His dream is to one day be self-sufficient, not relying on loans to construct the apartments.
