A loan of $500 helped to repair her motorbike.


Elina's story

Elina lives in Mombasa, Kenya. She owns a motorbike that transports people in town over short distances. She has employed someone to do the job and she pays him. She has been doing this business for the last two years. She also keeps herself busy selling food at the market to earn extra income. She is 34 years of age, married and blessed with two children. The motorbike developed mechanical problems and so it couldn't run properly. She now seeks a loan to repair the motorbike. She found out about Milango through friends and she joined. The major challenges in the business are weather and competition that is really stiff. She wants to own more than one motorbike in the near future. The income that she raises will improve her living standard and help her pay her children’s school fees.
