Abdalla is a resident of Malindi area of Coast province, Kenya. He is a married business man. Abdalla owns a retail shop, a business that he has been running for three year. Abdalla began the business through the savings he made from casual jobs. In this shop, he sells paraffin, sugar, flour etc. He is also employed.
He learnt about Milango from other clients and joined the institution with an aim of accessing credit to improve the operations of his business. The main challenge is high competition and price fluctuations. Abdalla is applying for a loan of 26,300 Kenya shillings to purchase paraffin, sugar, flour, and other non perishables for sale. The extra income from the loan will be added to his savings to improve on his living standard. He aspires to own other centers and plan for his children’s education with more security.
