A loan of $875 helped to buy a motorbike.


John's story

John, who lives in the Changamwe area of Coast province, Kenya, is married and has two children, neither of whom attends school. He owns a retail shop that sells cooking utensils, basins etc., a business he has been operating for five years now. The challenge he currently faces is finding customers.



Having learned about Milango through a friend, John would like to venture into the transport industry and so is requesting a loan of 73,100 Kenya shillings to buy a motorbike. The extra income arising from the loan will be added to savings to improve his family's living standard. John's future plan is to expand his shop into a wholesale business.
