Florence lives in Mariakani, Kenya. She is single and has two children, both of whom are in school. She has operated a retail shop for the last six years. Florence employs one other person in her business.
She is applying for a loan of KES 80,000 to purchase sugar, salt, and biscuits etc. She joined the group after an invitation from her friends. Her main challenge has been the lack of capital to buy more stock, a problem that has now been solved by joining Milango. Her aspirations include the opening of a wholesale business in the future.
The extra income obtained from this business will help her educate her children and also improve their standard of living.
