Joanes is a resident of Changamwe, Kenya and runs a food cafe which has been in business for three years and employs two other people. He is married and has two school going children. In this business he sells cooked food. He also owns a timber workshop.

Despite the challenge of perishability and lack of capital for expansion, Joanes aspires to own another larger business space from where he can sell the food. Joanes learnt of Milango from his friends and is applying for a loan of 41,900 Kenya shillings to purchase additional stock of food stuff such as wheat/maize flour, rice, beans etc. He also desires to move to a new venue such as a carry out business, and establish a hotel in the future.

Joanes believes the additional income from this loan will help him provide a good form of education for his children.
