Hillary's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to help acquire a motorcycle to boost his transport business.

Hillary's story

Hillary is happily married and blessed with three children. He runs a motorcycle transport business to provide full support to his family as he is the only breadwinner. Motorcycle transport is very common and popular in Kenya and is loved by many as it is a cheaper form of taxi service.

Hillary is requesting a loan to enable him buy another motorcycle to expand his business. He will channel his profits toward repaying his loan. Hillary's dreams are to be financially stable and to educate his children.
