Bridget is a resident of the Malindi area of Coast Province, Kenya. She is married and has one child. Bridget owns a retail shop, a business that she has been running for one year. She began this business from a loan that she obtained from a friend. She also sells charcoal.
She learned about Milango Financial Services from other clients, and joined with the goal of accessing credit to improve the operations of her business. Her main challenge is the scarcity of charcoal as well as price fluctuations.
Bridget is applying for a loan of 21,100 Kenyan Shillings to purchase flour, cooking oil, sugar and charcoal. The extra income from this loan will be added to her savings to improve her family's living conditions. She aspires to own other centers and plan for her child’s education with much security.
