Said is a resident of Mariakani, Kenya. He is a married father of six who runs a green grocery stall, which has been operating for the last four years. He sells vegetables and cereals.
Said started the business with his salary. He joined Milango to access credit for further business expansion and is applying for a loan of 36,700 Kenya shillings to purchase additional food to sell, such as tomatoes and potatoes.
Said’s future ambition is to own other shops. The challenges he needs to overcome are the high cost of transportation and the low seasons. The extra income from the loan will help him pay for his children’s school fees.
