Winfred lives in the Kongowea area of Coast Province, Kenya. She is a married mother of one child and owns a green grocery stall which she has been operating for two years. In this business, Winfred sells greens, fruits, and vegetables. She also runs a retail shop.
Winfred learned about Milango through a friend; she joined with the aim of accessing credit to improve her business operations. The challenges she is facing are bad debts and lack of capital to expand the business, an issue she feels will be partly solved by the loan for which she is applying.
Winfred is applying for a loan of 15,850 KES to buy wholesale vegetables and retail stock like soap and sugar. 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.
