Mary is married and has one child. She lives in Mombasa area of Coast Province, Kenya. Mary owns a clothes business, which she has been operating for five years.
Mary is requesting a loan for 41,850 KES, which she will use to purchase additional stocks of second-hand clothes. She learned about Milango through friends who invited her to the group. She joined with the aim of accessing credit to improve her business operations. Her main challenges are some customers not paying on time and the high cost of stock. Her extra income from the loan will be added to her savings to buy new stock. Her dream is to open a larger boutique/wholesale shop.
