Grace lives in the Mombasa area of Coast province, Kenya. She is married and has one child. She owns an electrical goods shop, a business she has been operating for three years now. She also does embroidery.
She learnt about Milango through a friend who invited her to the group and she joined with an aim of accessing credit to improve her business operations. Her main challenge is scarcity of some products, and the presence of fake goods which offends most clients.
Grace is applying for a loan of 73,100 Kenya shillings to purchase electrical items e.g. cables, sockets, switches etc. The extra income from this loan will be saved to buy a residential house. She aspires to expand and open another business and employ workers.
