Dongard lives in the Mombasa area of Coast Province, Kenya. He is married and has one child. He owns a retail shop, a business which has been running for eight months. In this business, he sells retail stock, such as rice, sugar, flour, cooking oil etc.
He 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 price fluctuations.
Dongard is applying for a loan of 41,850 Kenya shillings to buy retail stock like sugar, flour, etc. The extra income from the loan will be added to his savings to improve the living standards of his family.
