Mgandi is a married man and has been blessed with seven children. He owns a house that has electricity but not piped water. His greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees for the family.
For the past five years, he has operated a retail shop business, selling household consumables like wheat flour, rice and cooking oil. He cites the high cost of transportation as his major challenge.
Mgandi is requesting Kshs 50,000 to boost his kiosk, purchase bundles of wheat flour, maize flour, tea leaves and cooking oil. He dreams of expanding to a wholesale shop in the near future.
