Estar lives in the Mariakani area of Coast Province, Kenya. She is a married mother of four children. She owns a green grocery stall that she has been operating for four years. In this business, Estar sells greens, fruits, vegetables, etc. The family also earns some income from farming.
Estar learned about Milango through a Milango employee, and joined with an aim of accessing credit to improve the business operations. The challenges she is facing are inflation and the high costs of transportation of products from the source to her business site.
Estar is applying for a loan of 52,250 Kenya shillings to buy greens, other vegetables, and fruits. The extra income from the loan will be added to her savings to expand the business and pay for her children’s school fees. Her plans for the future are to start other businesses and also open stalls in different areas.
