Evans Nyagaka Anyona Founding Transline Classic
Under his uncle’s guidance, in 2002, Anyona purchased his first pickup truck for his business, a Mitsubishi. He modified it to a ‘seven aside’ matatu.
With the business flourishing, Evans Anyona bought 3 more ‘face-me’ pickups. Thereafter, he transitioned to the modern Nissan and Toyota models.
Anyona started to become a visionary for the transport industry. In 2005, he partnered with 2 close friends and they established Transline Ltd. They were James Bichange and Haron Kamau.
The newly formed company secured their first three buses by obtaining a loan from Equity Bank. Evans Anyona’s business empire boomed. His business partners contributed matatus that they operated as a unit.
In 2010, the luxurious Transline Classic separated from its parent company, Transline. In the same year, the company bought their first 11-seater shuttle.
As of 2012, the company had expanded significantly, with 24 buses serving the coastal and lake regions.
Within months, Transline Classic Sacco had attracted more investors who added more Transline Classic buses to the fleet, filling them to capacity in no time.
The loans secured from Equity Bank were also helpful in the branding process. Stanbic Asset Finance solution also played a huge role.
