Hendrika lives in the Malindi area of Coast province, Kenya. She has six children, five of whom attend school. She owns a restaurant which has been in operation for two years. Hendrika learnt about Milango through an employee. Her aim is to access credit to improve her business operations. Her main challenges are a seasonal business climate, price fluctuation and inflation.
Hendrika is applying for a loan of 21,050 Kenyan shillings to buy flour, sugar, cooking oil and cereals for the business. The extra income resulting from the loan will be added to her savings to improve the operations of the business and pay school fees for her children. Her dream is to open a bigger restaurant than the one she operates now.
