Timothy's story

Timothy lives in the Kilifi area of Coast province, Kenya. He is single. He owns a boutique business that he has been operating for three years.

He learned about Milango through a friend who invited him to the group. He joined with the aim of accessing credit to improve his business operations. His main challenge is competition.

Timothy is applying for a loan of 41,900 Kenya Shillings to buy gentleman's and ladies clothing. Any extra income will be added to his savings to improve his family's standard of living. He aspires to expand his business by opening another boutique.
