Fatuma lives in the Likoni area of Coast Province, Kenya. She is married with five children. She owns a water business which she has been operating for six years. She provides water to her neighbourhood.
Fatuma learned about Milango through friends who invited her to the group. She joined with the goal of accessing credit to improve her business. Her main challenges are seasonal weather, price fluctuation, inflation and finding customers.
Fatuma is applying for a loan of 43,150 Kenya shillings to buy another water pump. Her extra income from the loan will help pay the school fees for her children. Her dream is to buy a transportation vehicle and build a residential house.
