Mwahanje is 48 years of age. He lives with his wife and seven children in a neighborhood on the outskirts of Mombasa, Kenya. For the past 3 years he has worked selling vegetables and fruits from his home, where he has a small extension. He sells tomatoes, potatoes, onions, cabbages, kales, carrots and other products. His wife is also involved in food vending, selling dumplings.
Mwahanje has requested a loan of 30,000 KES, which he will use to buy more vegetables and fruits to supply his business and have higher sales. With this investment he will ensure availability of products to continue selling, as well as to cover his household expenses. In the future, Mwahanje would like to save to make improvements to his home.
