David lives in the Mariakani area of Coast Province, Kenya. He is married and has three children. He owns a boutique, a business that he has been operating for seventeen years. He started the business through his personal savings.
He learnt about Milango through friends who invited him to the group and he joined the group with the aim of accessing credit to improve his business operations. His main challenges are price fluctuations and inflation, high fuel and transport costs.
David is applying for a loan of 41,850 Kenya shillings to buy a plot of land and build a house. His future plan is to expand and have a shop where he will be selling wholesale.
