Samuel is a resident of Malindi, Kenya, and a married father of one school-going child. He is a farmer and has been in the business for five years. He normally cultivates tomatoes, brinjals (also known as aubergines, or eggplant) and other vegetables. Samuel is also employed.
He was introduced to Milango by his friends. Samuel is applying for a loan of 41,850 Kenyan shillings to purchase fertilizers and seedlings to plant. He intends to save the additional income for future projects. His main ambition is to increase the acreage of the farm, or the area under cultivation. Samuel believes this will help improve his standard of living, especially as it relates to the education of his child.
