Stephen is a resident of Kongowea, Kenya. He is single and owns a barber shop which has been in operation for five years. He began the business from savings he had made over a long period of time. He also sells recorded compact discs.

Stephen is applying for a loan of 31,500 Kenyan shillings to purchase shavers and other business equipment, as well as to buy new compact discs to sell. He was introduced to Milango by his friends. Although the business faces the challenge of high cost of purchasing equipment, Stephen believes that the addition of these new machines will help improve his sales.

His ambition is to open other shops in the future to increase his sources of income.
