Halfani lives in the Mariakani area of Coast province. He is married and has three children. He owns a carpentry workshop, which he has been operating for ten years now. He started the business through his little savings.

He learned about Milango through friends, with the aim of accessing credit to improve the operation of the business. The challenge he is facing is purchasing stock.

Halfani is applying for a loan of 52,250 Kenya shillings to buy another laser machine, timber, nails and other equipment for the workshop. His extra income from the loan will be added to his savings to repair the broken machines and service them. His future plans are to expand the business to sell outside his country and to establish branches in other countries.
