Samson lives in Mombasa area of Coast Province, Kenya. He is married and has one child. He owns a retail shop, a business which has been running for five years. In this business, he sells mainly eggs. He learnt about Milango from friends who invited him to the group, and he joined with the aim of accessing credit to improve his business operations. His main challenges are the high cost of the products and lack of a favourable means of transport for distributing eggs. He would like to correct this by buying a motorcycle.
Samson is applying for a loan of 83,450 Kenyan shillings to buy a motorcycle. The extra income from the loan will be added to his savings to improve on the living standard of his family and pay school fees.
