Onesmus lives in the Mombasa area of Coast province, Kenya. He is married and has one child. He owns a transport business, which he has been operating for five years. He offers transport service to the residents of Mombasa through a three-wheeler.
He learned about Milango through a friend who invited him to the group, and he joined with an aim of accessing credit to improve the business operations. The challenge he is facing is high fuel costs.
Onesmus is applying for a loan of 99,100 Kenyan shillings to expand the business by buying a motorcycle and repairing the three-wheeler. The extra income from the loan will be added to his savings to improve the living standards of his family.
