Nairobi businessman Jimal Marlow Ibrahim, popularly know as Jamal Rohosafi has responded to claims that he is broke and survives on loans.
On Tuesday, July 13, the businessman’s wife claimed that her husband depends on bank loans to sustain his lavish lifestyle.
In a social media post that has since been deleted, Jamal responded to the claims noting that he needs loans to finance his businesses.
“I will not lie, I take loans to finance my businesses. Every businessperson in this country that has a humble background, you have to take a loan to raise yourself to go higher,” he said.
The father of two proudly added that he owes three banks over KSh 320 million in loans, adding that such amounts can only be given to people with reliable revenue streams.
“I owe KSh 150 million in loans to a bank and another KSh 80 million and another KSh 90 million. If you owe three banks that amount then you have a good income to sustain those loans
” A bank is not your mother’s house to check in and they will just front you the cash. They have to look at your net worth, assets and then decide to give you a loan,” he wrote.
Jamal runs a number of businesses in the transport sector.
