Christine lives in Changamwe, Kenya. She is married and owns a vehicle spare parts shop; a business she began three years ago. After being introduced to Milango by her friends, Christine is now applying for a loan of Ksh 21,05. She will us her first loan in Milango to purchase spare parts to use in vehicle repairs such as vehicle oil, brake pads, reflectors and tail lamps. Besides this business, Christine also runs a salon.
The business has many customers due to the fact that there many vehicle garages operating in the area but without spare part shops. Christine faces the challenge of lack of capital to purchase stocks of spare parts. She looks forward to opening other centers in future and looks forward to owning a business premise instead of renting one.
She will use the extra income for the family’s needs.
