Teresia is a resident of the Changamwe area of Coast Province, Kenya. She is a single mother of two school-going children. She owns a secondhand clothes shop – a business that she has been operating for five years. Her main challenges are that some customers do not pay on time and the high purchase price of the clothes.
Teresia learnt about Milango through an employee and joined the company with the aim of accessing credit to improve the operations of her business. Teresia is applying for a loan of 41,850 Kenyan shillings to purchase bales of secondhand clothes. The extra income from the loan will be added to her savings to pay school fees for her children. She aspires to start a transport business in the future.
