David lives in the Likoni area of Coast province, Kenya. He is a married businessman and owns a transport business which he has been operating for four years. He offers transport service to the residents of Likoni.
David learnt about Milango through a friend who invited him to the group and he joined with an aim of accessing credit to improve business operations. The challenges he is facing are police harassment and an unpredictable business climate, especially during the rainy seasons. He therefore would like to set up another business besides the transport.
David is applying for a loan of 21,100 Kenyan shillings to buy a stock of charcoal. The extra income from the loan will be added to his savings to improve the living standard of his family. His plan for the future is to buy another motorcycle.
