Kenga lives in the Mariakani area of Coast Province, Kenya. He is married and has five children, two of whom are in school. He owns a grocery shop, a business that he has been operating for ten 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 high transport and fuel costs and seasonal weather changes.
Kenga is applying for a loan of 31,450 Kenya shillings to buy additional stock of groceries e.g. bags of potatoes, cabbages etc. He will use the extra income from the loan to pay for his children’s school fees. His future plan is to become the supplier of the area.
