Michael lives in the Mombasa area of Coast Province, Kenya. He is married and has two school-going children. He owns a service shop which deals in repair and sale of tyres. He also sells clothes and has a barber shop, too.
Michael learnt about Milango through advertisements and he joined with the aim of accessing credit to improve his business operations. His main challenge is lack of finance, a problem he sees partly sorted by this loan.
Michael is applying for a loan of 41,850 Kenya shillings to buy tyres and repair materials like tough bond glue. He believes that the business has improved enough to meet the required repayments for the loan despite high competition.
