Benard's story

Benard lives in Mariakani, Kenya. He is 48 years old, married, and blessed with five children. Three of his children attend school. He operates a wholesale shop where he lives, and he is seeking to add another product line to his business. He got to know Milango through friends, and he joined. He has been able to borrow from Milango and Kiva as well. All the loans he has taken out were repaid without much difficulty. He has now applied for another loan to import cell phones for his shop. The major challenge that he deals with in his business is the unstable prices. The income that he produces with the loan will help him to send his children to school and improve their living standard.
