Beatrice is a resident of the Kongowea area of Coast province in Kenya. She is a single mother of one child. Beatrice owns a wine and spirits shop, a business that she has been running for two years. She intends to increase her sources of income by opening a mobile money transfer shop.
Beatrice learnt about Milango from an employee and joined the institution with an aim of accessing credit to improve the operations of her business. Her main challenges are a lack of funds to grow the business and competition.
Beatrice is applying for a loan of 41,850 Kenya shillings to open a mobile money transfer shop. The extra income from the loan will be added to her savings to improve her family’s standard of living, especially through the education of her child. She aspires to own more centres in the future.
