Julius lives in Mombasa, Kenya. He is 33 years old, married, and blessed with three children. He is a mechanic by training and he does panel beating. He has been in the business for more than ten years now. All his three children attend school. He also runs charcoal business in another market around town. His future goal is to be a distributor of spare parts in the whole city.
Julius heard about Milango through friends and now seeks a loan to buy fibre glass and chemicals. The challenges in the business include shortage of protective clothing and the high cost of transportation. The extra income raised from the business will help him improve his living standards and buy food and pay school fees for his children.
