Donald lives the Changamwe area of Coast province. He is married and has ten children, five of whom are in school. He owns a transport business which he has been operating for two years now. Besides this, Donald also sells firewood.
He learnt about Milango through a friend who invited him to the group and he joined with the aim of accessing credit to improve the operation of the business. The challenges he is facing are price fluctuation and inflation, seasonal weather and high transport and fuel costs.
Donald is applying for a loan of 83,500 Kenya shillings to purchase a motorcycle. The extra income will help him pay for school fees and start an alternative business for his wife.
