Salim lives in Mariakani area of Coast Province, Kenya. He is married. He owns a transport business which he has been operating for one year. He learnt about Milango through friends who invited him to the group and he joined with the aim of accessing credit to improve his business operations. His main challenges are high transport and fuel prices, seasonal weather and finding customers.
Salim is applying for a loan of 21,050 Kenya shillings to add to his savings and purchase a motorcycle. The extra income from the loan will be added to his savings to expand his business. His dream is to see his business grow and buy other motorbikes to boost his transport business.
