Emmanuel is a resident of Mombasa, Kenya, and runs a food cafe. He has been doing this work for 15 years. He is a married father of four children, two of whom are school-going. He is also employed.
Emmanuel employs four other people in the cafe business, currently. He plans to ease transportation of his food purchases to the business, by buying a motorcycle with the loan funds. He learned of Milango from his friends and is applying for a loan of 83,450 Kenyan shillings to purchase the motorcycle for the business.
Despite the challenges of perishability, high competition and bad debts, Emmanuel aspires to move to a new and larger location, to carry out good business, and to establish a hotel in the future.
Emmanuel believes the additional income from this loan will help him provide a good education to his children.
