Kazungu is a married business lady who lives in Malindi and sells roofing materials commonly referred to as ‘makuti’. These items are preferred for roofing in the Malindi area and on the coast in general since they protect from the heat which is experienced at the coast during the day time. She has been running the business for two years.
Kazungu was introduced to Milango by her friends and is applying for a loan of 21,050 Kenya shillings to purchase more coconut leaves and thread for sewing. Her main challenges are high inflation which has reduced the purchasing power of most customers and lack of reliable customers. Kazungu will save the additional income from this loan.
