Paul is 37 years old, married, and has four children who attend school. He lives in Kongowea, north of Mombasa, Kenya. He runs a fruit business in the local market, which he has been doing for more than 15 years. His business is growing.
Paul is requesting a loan from Milango, which he will use to buy fruits to sell. He hopes that the business will expand in the next five years despite the usual challenge of competition from other traders. He will use the extra income to add stock to his business and improve his standard of living.
