Claris lives in the coastal town of Malindi, Kenya. She is married and has four children. Claris was employed and after saving some money, she added it onto the contribution from her husband as the startup capital for the current business. She now owns a food café which has been in operation for three years.
Claris was introduced to Milango by her friends and joined in order to access credit for her business. She is applying for a loan of 21,100 Kenya shillings to purchase more charcoal and food stock for the café. Her aspiration is to open a restaurant in the near future.
Claris will use the additional income from this loan to purchase chairs for the café as part of her plan of expanding the sitting capacity of the café.
