When asked about his experience with AKIBA, Paul recounted, “I started off as a ‘Machinga’ (hawker) before getting a loan from AKIBA, which I used to open a place of my own. I am proud of owning this business though it Is still small… I am sure my business will keep on growing as I remain a faithful customer and continue borrowing from AKIBA. I am looking forward to running a very big shop!”
