Julia lives in the Mariakani area of Coast province, Kenya. She is a married mother of six and owns a green grocery stall, which she has been operating for five years. In this business, Julia sells greens, fruits, vegetables, etc. She began the business from her savings.
Julia learned about Milango through a friend. She is hoping to access credit to improve her business operations. The challenges she is facing are price fluctuation and inflation, purchasing stock, and seasonal business climate.
Julia is applying for a loan of 41,850 Kenyan shillings (KES) to buy vegetables and tomatoes wholesale. The extra income from the loan will be added to her savings to expand the business. Her plans for the future are to start other businesses and also open stalls in different areas.
