Furaha lives in the Mariakani area of Coast Province, Kenya. He is married and has two children. He owns a retail shop, a business that has been running for two years. In this business, he sells retail stock of kerosene and petrol. These products are in high demand in the area due to the high number of motorcycles used.
Furaha learned 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 challenge is the high cost of products.
Furaha is applying for a loan of 21,050 Kenyan shillings to buy storage containers, petrol, and kerosene. The extra income from the loan will be added to his savings to improve the living standards of his family.
