Gibson is 37 years old, and is married with four children, who all attend school. Gibson lives in Kongowea, Kenya, where he owns a retail shop. He has been running this business for three years now. He also owns a poultry farm.
He heard of Milango through friends, and he now seeks a loan to buy maize flour, salt, cooking fat, greengrams (mung beans) and eggs to sell. Gibson's major challenges in his business are a lack of financing and competition. Gibson also wants to use part of the loan to buy poultry feed.
The extra income from the business will go towards paying school fees for his children. His living standards will also improve as a result of the loan use.
