Leila lives in the Malindi area of the Coast Province, Kenya. She is a single mother of one child. She owns a food cafe, a business she has been operating for one year.
She 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 competition and the lack of funds.
Leila is applying for a loan of 41,850 Kenya shillings to buy utensils, cooking oil, maize flour, cereals and wheat flour. Her extra income will add to her savings to improve the living standards of her family. She aspires to expand her cafe and pay for her child’s school fees.
