Samsoni lives in Mombasa, Kenya. He is a 35-year-old married businessman, and he sells tea in town. He buys tea at wholesale, and sells it at retail. He has been operating the business for the last one and a half years. His business has grown, and he has been able to employ someone to help him run the business.
He learned of Milango through friends, and now seeks a loan to buy 20 bags of tea leaves to sell. The major challenges in the business are high transportation costs and a shortage of capital. The income that he will raise will improve his living standards.
