David is a resident of the Kongowea area of the Coast province of Kenya. He is a single businessman and owns a retail shop which he has been running for nine years. David began the business through his savings from performing casual jobs. In this shop, he sells items such as paraffin, sugar and flour. He is also a mason by trade.
David learned about Milango from other clients and joined the institution with an aim of accessing credit to improve the operations of his business. The main challenges his business face are high competition and bad debts.
David is applying for a loan of 21,100 Kenya shillings to purchase items such as paraffin, sugar and flour for resale. The extra income from the loan will be added to his savings to improve his living standard. He aspires to own other centers.
