Khadija lives in Mombasa, Kenya. She is married and owns a cosmetics shop. She began the business in 2002, using her retirement benefits. She learned about Milango from her friends and joined in order to access more funding for her business.
Khadija is applying for a loan of KES 80,000 to purchase more cosmetics. The main challenge the business faces is inflation, which has reduced the purchasing power of many customers. Her future plans include opening up a wholesale cosmetics business. She would also like to start another business using the income obtained from this loan.
