Leah is a resident of Mariakani of Coast province, Kenya. She is single and runs a food cafe, a business that she has been operating for ten years. She sells rice, beans, potatoes etc. Besides this, she also owns a dress-making shop.
She learnt about Milango through an employee and joined with the aim of accessing credit to improve the operations of her business. Her main challenge is some customers not paying on time.
Leah is applying for a loan of 73,100 Kenya shillings to purchase some flour, sugar, cereals, cooking oil and other equipment for the cafe. The extra income from the loan will be added to her savings to improve her living standards. She aspires to open a big restaurant in the future.
