David is 33 years of age. He is married and blessed with two children. Both his children attend school. For more than ten years he has been selling tomatoes at a market in town. He lives in Mombasa, Kenya, together with his wife and their children. He has one person employed who helps in running the tomato business.
David wants to start selling tomatoes wholesale, and that has been his vision. In the next five years he hopes to open a wholesale depot of tomatoes. There have been challenges in his business. Competition is one challenge that he deals with every day. Also customers who buy on credit sometimes do not pay him in good time.
He knows Milango through friends and now seeks a loan to buy 10 crates of tomatoes for resale. The extra income raised from the loan will go towards paying his children's school fees and improving their living standards.
