As part of Mash’s corporate social responsibility initiative, we provide sustainable loans through KIVA to aid entrepreneurs in developing countries.
For March as our entrepreneur of the month, we have chosen Joseph Olyang , from Kangemi, Nairobie, Kenya. Mash have funded his entire project loan amount through KIVA.
Joseph Olyang is 41 years old, married and the father of one child. He has been working as a mechanic in a garage where he repairs vehicles for his customers in Kangemi, Nairobi. He earns an income of 10,000 KES per month.
Joseph learned about Kiva through a friend. He has applied for his first loan from Kiva which he plans to use to purchase spare parts. He intends to use the anticipated profit to save and plow back into the business.
In the future Joseph would like to grow his business and start selling spare parts from Dubai and Japan.
Mash are delighted to be helping Joseph achieve his dreams.
