Henry lives in the Mariakani area of Coast Province, Kenya. He is married and has one child. He owns a retail shop, a business which has been running for two years.
He learnt about Milango through friends who invited him to the group and he joined with the aim of accessing credit to improve his business operations. His main challenges are inflation and bad debts.
Henry is applying for a loan of 41,850 Kenya shillings to buy retail stock, e.g., rice, sugar, flour, cooking oil, etc. The extra income from the loan will be added to his savings to improve the living standard of his family and pay school fees for his child.
