Sophia lives in the Mariakani area of Coast Province, Kenya. She is a married mother of four children. She owns a fruit stall which she has been operating for two years. In this business, Sophia sells greens and fruits. The family also earns some income from rental houses.
Sophia learned about Milango Financial Services through a Milango employee. She joined with an aim of accessing credit to improve the business operations.
Sophia is applying for a loan of 41850 KES (Kenya shillings) to buy greens and fruit (e.g. tamarind, avocadoes, vegetables). 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 to open stalls in different areas.
