Frankline is a resident of Changamwe, Kenya. He is a tea dealer, a business he has run for eight years. He learned of Milango (Kiva lending partner) from other clients. Frankline is married and has eight children, only two of whom are still in school.
Frankline is applying for a loan of 80,000 Kenya shillings (KES) to purchase a new stock of packed and blended tea. The main business challenge is the infiltration of substandard blended tea in the market. He would like to be an exporter of tea. Additional income from this loan will help him to pay school fees and to provide good health care to his children. He is full of praise about Milango and the role they play in impacting the society.
