Makupe lives in the Malindi area of Coast province, Kenya. He has one child. He owns a spare parts shop, a business he has been operating for three years now. He also carries out minor repairs and body works. He learned about Milango through a friend who invited him to the group and he joined with an aim of accessing credit to improve his business operations. His main challenge is the seasonal market. He has been a very dedicated client with on time repayments on previous loans; this is his third loan with Milango.
Makupe is applying for a loan of 83,500 Kenya shillings to purchase repair stock and accessories e.g. shocks, brakes, starter, lights, side mirrors, soldering rods etc. His extra income will be added to his savings to pay school fees for his child. He aspires to expand and have a new outlet.
