Leah lives in the Kongowea area of Coast province, Kenya. She is married and has four children, three of whom attend school. She owns a tailoring business, which she has been operating for six years.
She learned about Milango through a friend who invited her to the group, and she joined with an aim of accessing credit to improve the business operations. The challenges she is facing are price fluctuation, inflation and a seasonal market.
Leah is applying for a loan of 21,450 Kenyan shillings to buy sewing threads and rolls of material for sewing. The extra income from the loan will be added to her savings to improve the living standard of the family and pay for her children’s school fees.
