Tatu lives in the Changamwe area of the province of Coast in Kenya. She is married and has three children.
Tatu owns a food cafe, a business she has been operating for one year now. Apart from this, she owns a transport business where she earns a salary.
Tatu learned about Milango through a friend who invited her to the group. She joined with the goal of accessing credit to improve her business operations. Her main challenges are price fluctuations and inflation as well as customers not paying on time.
Tatu is applying for a loan of 83,500 KES to renovate her café and to buy maize flour, cereals, cooking oil and charcoal. Her extra income will be added to her savings to pay her children's school fees and improve her living standard. She aspires to expand her business into a larger restaurant.
