Simion lives in the Changamwe area of Coast Province, Kenya. He is married with four children. He owns a food cafe which he has been operating for ten years.
He learned about Milango through friends who invited him to the group. He joined with the aim of accessing credit to improve his business operations. His main challenges are debts and high transportation and fuel costs.
Simion is applying for a loan of 83,500 Kenya shillings to buy cooking oil, cereals and wheat flour. His extra income from the loan will be added to his savings to pay school fees for his children and improve on his living standards. His dream is to open another food cafe.
