Ayub's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy sugar, rice, soap, flour and other retail products.
Ayub lives around the Mount Kenya region in a place called N'timau. He is 38 years old, married and blessed with three children. All his three children attend school. He owns a retail shop that he has been operating for the last two years. He also farms and keeps animals at his farm. He also hopes that in the next five years he will be running a wholesale business. He knew Milango through friends and now seeks a loan to buy sugar, rice, soap, flour and other retail products for his shop. The major challenges that he faces in the business include competition and unstable pricing of commodities. The income that he will generate will improve his standard of living and also pay school fees for his children.
