Mike's loan finished fundraising,

Mike's story

Mike is a young Kenyan entrepreneur who has built a name for himself from his successful electronics store within Kenya’s Kakuma Town. He was previously employed, but quit after identifying the gap and established his business in 2013. He has since diversified and added mobile-money transfer and bank agency services within the shop. He also supplies cooking gas cylinders, in addition to selling general insurance services.

Mike has been used as a successful reference for the youth in business within the area. He inspires so many and is ever willing to share his insights on running a successful business with the community.

With his first two loans from AEC, Mike’s business has registered notable, considerable growth and he has revamped and refurbished the store to attract new customers. With this third loan, he is looking at introducing laptops as no one is currently selling them within the area.
