Thomas is a resident of Changamwe, Kenya. He is a hardware store owner. His business has been in operation for fifteen years. Thomas is married and the father of four school children.
He joined Milango two years ago to access credit for business expansion. Thomas is applying for a loan of 83,450 Kenya shillings to buy hardware stock like, bicycle spare, bolts, welding rods and paint. Besides this business, Thomas is also employed. The main challenges to both businesses are high transportation costs and bad debts.
Thomas’s future aspiration is to sell retail and wholesale products and he believes that he can run the businesses fairly. He also wants to buy a transportation machine from the extra income from this loan. He is happy about the investment and he knows this will help him provide for his family.
