Janet is a resident of Kongowea, Kenya. She is a married mother of two school-going children. She owns a retail shop which has been in operation for three years and has been a source of constant income to the family. In this shop, she sells sugar, cooking oil, and washing detergents among other things. Besides this business, Janet is also a vendor of water.
She learnt of Milango from a company employee and joined in order to access credit for her business. Janet is asking for a loan of 21,100 Kenya shillings to purchase retail stock like cereal, sugar, cooking fat, etc.
Janet is optimistic that the sales will increase and she will finally open another retail shop. Her desire is to grow her future chain of businesses into a wholesale business. The additional income obtained from this loan will help restock her shop and also pay her children’s school fees. The only challenge that Janet faces is inflation.
