Grace lives in the Kilifi area of Coast Province, Kenya. She is married and has two children. She owns a retail shop which she has been operating for seven years. Besides this, Grace is also a dairy farmer, selling milk to the surrounding estates.
She learnt about Milango through friends who invited her to the group and she joined with the aim of accessing credit to improve her business operations. Her main challenges are competition and lack of funds.
Grace is requesting a loan of 62,700 Kenya shillings to buy sugar, wheat flour, maize flour and cereals. The extra income from the loan will be added to her savings, to improve her family's standard of living. Her dream is to open up a wholesale shop.
