Dickson lives in Mombasa area of Coast province, Kenya. He is the married father of two children.
He owns a retail shop, a business that he has been operating for two years. In this shop, Dickson sells assorted retail products, e.g., tea leaves, biscuits, sweets, etc.
He learned about Milango through a friend with an aim of obtaining credit to improve his business operations. The challenge he is facing is finding customers and long periods of travelling.
Dickson is applying for a loan of KES 47,100 to buy cartons of biscuits and sweets, etc. The extra income from the loan will be added to his savings to improve the living standard of his family, especially security and healthcare.
His plan for the future is to grow the business to a level where he will no longer have to use a bicycle to distribute the goods but maybe a vehicle.
