Menyikwa Jua-Kali Group's story

Wilfred is a leader and member of Menyikwa Jua Kali Self-Help Group. He is a motorcycle taxi driver and is married with two young children. Wilfred enjoys working for himself and appreciates that he doesn't have to carry stock for his business like others in his group do. He says that he makes around 600-1000 schillings per day ($9-15). His expenses include licenses, fuel, oil, and general maintenance. Wilfred is grateful for the fact that his loans have enabled him to own his home, buy food, and save for his children's future school fees.

With this loan Wilfred hopes to purchase an additional motorbike and employ a driver on commission. Eventually, he would like to have a fleet of vehicles under his ownership. Since the area of Kisii is rugged and contoured, the town has a high demand for small transportation vehicles.

In this group: Wilfred, Sarah, Peter, Jane, Rose, Agnes, Zephaniah, Thomas, Martha, Edward, Hyline, Isaac
