A loan of $900 helped to expand his business by buying more spare parts to sell.


Kassim's story

Kassim is 41 years old, married, and has a three-month-old child. For the past six years he has run a spare parts shop in the Mombasa region from which he sells parts for motorcycles. He also has a boda boda (motorcycle taxi) business and sells charcoal. He describes himself as caring, understanding and down to earth.

This will be Kassim’s fourth loan with SMEP. He is a good client who repays his loans well. He intends to use this loan to expand his business by buying more spare parts to sell.

Kassim plans to use the anticipated profits to restock his shop and take care of his family’s expenses. In the future, Kassim hopes to be an importer of spare parts for motorcycles and cars.
