Susan has a cafe and lives in Likoni, Kenya. She began the business from the funds she obtained from a ‘merry go round’; a scheme where people come together and contribute equal amounts of money and lend to one person at a time. Her business has been in operation for the last two years. She learnt of Milango through her friends.
Susan is applying for a loan of Ksh 40,000 to purchase foodstuffs for her café and also to carry out farming. The main challenges she faces are theft, inflation and some customers not paying on time.
Her future plans include building commercial houses. Susan will use the extra income to buy charcoal for sale.
