Stephen lives in the Mombasa area of Coast province, Kenya. He is a married businessman who is employed as a driver of a three-wheeled vehicle commonly referred to as a “tuk tuk”. The business has been in operation for three years. He aspires to widen his income by owning a motorcycle. Stephen learned about Milango through a friend and joined with the aim of accessing credit to improve his business operations. The challenge he is facing is fluctuating fuel prices.
Stephen is applying for a loan of 83,500 Kenya shillings to purchase a motorcycle. Stephen believes that by employing another person he will help others in need besides earning himself some income. The extra income from the loan will be added to his savings to improve his living standard and has set his ambition in owning a three-wheeled vehicle.
