Elvina lives in the Changamwe area of Coast Province, Kenya. She is a married business lady who owns a green grocer, a business she has been operating for less than a year. She started the business from the income she received while selling buns. She sells tomatoes, sugar, onions, and more in this business.
She learned about Milango through friends who invited her to the group. She joined with the aim of accessing credit to improve her business operations. Her main challenge is the high costs of transport while sourcing the goods.
Elvina is applying for a loan of 41,900 Kenya shillings to buy vegetables and fruits wholesale and some bags of sugar. Her extra income from the loan will be added to her savings to construct a rental house and improve the living standards of her family.
