"My Business Worth Millions Collapsed After I Took a Shylock Loan, I Now Masks" Man Narrates

Robert Muthee was a successful businessman in Thika between 2000 and 2008. He was a professional photographer. His business included taking still photos, video coverage and also ran a shop for camera accessories. 

In a month, he would at least bank a million. He was living on the first lane. He had a high credit score since he would deposit millions in his bank account every month.

But one shylock loan changed his status. Instead of investing the cash into his business, he used it to travel and buy personal assets.

He slowly entered into debts, his business closed down and he was reduced to washing cars in a nearby car wash to survive.

The much he would earn would be 300 bob a day. 

Today, Muthee is rebuilding his life. He has ventured into selling masks. He oftenly jokes with his customers using the common phrase 'salimia watu, pesa huisha!'. 

He advises business people to only take up loans when necessary and for investment purposes.
