Benson's story

Benson lives in the Kongowea area, which is north of Mombasa, Kenya. He is 33 years old, and he is married with one child.

He has been in the café business for the last two years, and the business has been growing since then. He hopes that the business will grow into a restaurant in the next five years, despite the challenges of competition and funding.

He learned of Milango through friends, and now he seeks a loan to buy food stuffs like flour and beans for the business. He will use the income that he will raise from the business to educate his children and improve their living standards.
