Kennedy's story

Kennedy lives in the Kongowea area of Kenya. He is 31 years old and married with three children. He has been running a café for the last year, and the business has been doing great. He is also a plumber and has employed someone to run the café on his behalf. Kennedy has a vision that his business will grow into a reputable restaurant in town. The challenges in the business are transportation costs, competition and finances. He learned of Milango Financial Services through friends and is now seeking a loan to buy utensils for the business, such as plates, cups and cutlery. The extra income will increase his standard of living.
