Mwinga, a resident of Mariakani, Kenya, has been running a transport business for three years. The town is situated along the highway linking the Coastal town and the upcountry parts of the Country. It, therefore, receives a high number of goods and peoples in transit to other towns.
Mwinga is married and has three children. Mwinga was introduced to Milango by his friends and is applying for a loan of 21,050 to make repairs on his vehicle. His ambition for the future is to purchase another motorcycle and to purchase a piece of land upon which to build rental houses.
The main challenge facing Mwinga’s business is high fuel costs. The additional income from this loan will help him finance his children’s education.
