Mwanzagu is a merchant who makes a living buying and selling fish. He has been dedicated to this activity for more than one year, so he already has some good experience. Mwanzangu also has his own boat, nets and fishing equipment, which helps him work without depending on anyone. He is known as a person with a strong desire to move up in life and help his family.

He is requesting the loan to purchase fish, which he will use to have more fish in stock since demand is high, and he wants to be able to satisfy his customers. Mwanzagu is grateful for the help he is receiving from Kiva partner Yehu Microfinance because it will be a big help.
