Mwanzia lives in the Mombasa area of Coast Province, Kenya. He is married and has five children. He sells horticultural produce (eg. tomatoes, onions, vegetables) and has been operating this business for twenty years. He also earns salary from a tea tree business and rental shops. Mwanzia learned of Milango through a friend with an aim of accessing credit to better his business operations. The main challenge he faces is the scarcity of water.
Mwanzia is applying for a loan of 31,450 Kenyan Shillings to buy more fruits and vegetables. His extra income from the loan will be added to his savings to expand the business and to improve his livelihood. His future plan, in five years, is to move to bigger income-generating activities.
