Alex is a fish monger living in Changamwe, Kenya. He is married and has three children. Fish is among the staple foods for the residents living around Alex.
Alex has been operating the business for five years. This is his source of income. He also runs rental houses.
Alex joined Milango this year and is applying for a loan of 83,450 Kenya shillings to purchase additional stock of fish and cooking fat. His ambition is to be the largest supplier of fish to the areas around Mariakani town.
The extra income will also form part of Alex’s future savings and help him pay for his children’s school fees. The challenge currently is high cost of transport, since Alex has to go and look for fish stock. He desires to set up a retail shop in the future and also to build a rental house.
