David's highest monthly expense is school fees. When asked 'how will this loan benefit his family', David replied 'it will provide more income.'

As part of Juhudi's loan appraisal process, each borrower's assets are evaluated. David owns the following ' acow' but does not own 'pigs, poultry, pumps, bicycles, motorcycles or automobiles.' Juhudi Kilimo also tries to measure any change in living standards based on this loan. This borrower has in the household 'a mosquito net' but does not have 'electricity, solar power, running water, a sewing machine, a TV or a DVD.'
