Chelule is a 33-year-old, married man. He is married to Norah. They have children between the ages of six and twelve years old.

To earn a living, he buys sand from a mining firm and sells it to construction workers. He explains that he has been in this line of business for the last ten years, and that his business operations typically earn him a monthly income of approximately 26,000 KES.

He is requesting a loan in the amount of 20,000 KES, which he would use to acquire a donkey cart to more easily transport the sand. He plans on saving any additional income he generates as a result of the loan. Chelule's dream is to expand his business into a highly profitable venture and to thereby improve his family's living standards.
