Samuel lives in the Kilifi area of Coast province, Kenya. He is married and has two children, one of whom attends school. He owns a retail shop, a business he has been operating for two years now.
He learnt about Milango through a friend who invited him to the group, and he joined with the goal of accessing credit to improve his business operations. His main challenges are competition and lack of funds.
Samuel is requesting a loan of 62,700 Kenya shillings to buy sugar, maize flour, wheat flour, tea leaves and cereals in wholesale. The extra income will be added to his savings to improve his family's standard of living, including investing in their education. He aspires to expand his business by opening a wholesale shop.
