Thomas lives in Kilifi area of Coast Province, Kenya. He is married and has one child in school. He owns a transport business that he has been operating for one year. This mode of transport is greatly preferred because of the bad road network, which is not accessible by vehicles.
He learned about Milango through friends who invited him to the group. He joined with the aim of obtaining credit to improve his business operations. His main challenges are high transport and fuel prices, seasonal weather, and finding customers.
Thomas is applying for a loan of KES 8,250 to add to his savings and purchase a motorcycle. The extra income from the loan will be added to his savings to expand his business. His dream is to see his business grow and buy another motorbike to boost his transport business.
