Chimboja lives in the Mombasa area of Coast province, Kenya. He is married and has five children. He owns a charcoal business, which he has been operating for ten years now.
He learned about Milango through a friend who invited him to the group, and he joined with an aim of accessing credit to improve on his business operations. His main challenge is low markets due to the seasonal market.
Chimboja is applying for a loan of 62,650 Kenya shillings to purchase additional stock of charcoal. His extra income will be added to his savings to pay school fees for his children.
He aspires to expand and start a transport business and build a rental house.
