Baby lives in the Likoni area of Coast Province, Kenya. She is married and has one child. She owns a charcoal and coconut business, which she has been operating for one year. She started the business through her mother’s savings.
She learned about Milango through a friend with an aim of accessing credit to improve her business operations. The challenge she is facing is high transport costs and seasonal weather.
Baby is applying for a loan of 21,100 Kenya shillings to buy charcoal wholesale and coconuts for selling. The extra income from the loan will be added to her savings to save for her own use. Her plan for the future is to build a business house and sell charcoal wholesale.
