Josephine lives in the Mariakani area of Coast Province, Kenya. She is married and has three children. She owns a green grocer, a business which she has been operating for 6 years. She started the business from the income she received while selling buns. Her main challenge is the high cost of transport while sourcing for the goods.
Josephine learned about Milango through friends who invited her to the group and she joined with the aim of accessing credit to improve her business operations. She is applying for a loan of 41,850 Kenya shillings to buy vegetables and fruits wholesale. Her extra income from the loan will be added to her savings to construct a rental house and improve on the living standard of her family.
