Salama lives in the Malindi area of Coast province, Kenya. She is a married mother of two school-going children and owns a greengrocery stall which she has been operating for three years. In this business, Salama sells greens, fruits and vegetables, etc. She is also employed as an office secretary in an accounting firm.
Salama learnt about Milango through a friend with an aim of accessing credit to improve the business operations. The challenges she is facing are price fluctuation and inflation, purchasing stock and the seasonal business climate.
She is applying for a loan of 41,900 Kenya shillings to buy vegetables wholesale and tomatoes. 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.
