George lives in the Kongowea area of Coast Province, Kenya. He is married and has one school going child. He owns a clothing shop, a business that he has been operating for two years. He started the business through his personal savings. He is also a driver of a public service vehicle. He mainly sells bedsheets.
He learnt about Milango through friends who invited him to the group and he joined the group with the aim of accessing credit to improve his business operations. His main challenges are occasional limited demand and high market fees.
George is applying for a loan of 15,900 Kenyan shillings to buy clothes to sell. The extra income generated from the loan will be added to his savings to educate his children. He desires to grow his business into a wholesale outlet in the near future.
