A loan of $575 helped to buy spare motorcycle parts and additional salon equipment.


George's story

George is a resident of Kilifi, Kenya. He is a single businessman who transports goods and people through a motorcycle transport business, a trade he has run for one year. He also owns a barber shop.

George learned of Milango from a friend and joined in order to access funds. He is applying for a loan of 47,100 Kenyan shillings to buy spare motorcycle parts and additional salon equipment.

The only challenge in George's business is the high cost of spare parts and fluctuating fuel prices, but George is determined to carry out his operations well because he believes that it is from such a venture that he can establish a family. His future ambition is to be able to purchase many motorcycles and establish other salons.
