Rose lives in the Kongowea area of Coast Province, Kenya. She is the married mother of five grown-up children. Rose owns a charcoal stall which she has been operating for six months.
Rose learnt about Milango through a friend and joined with the aim of accessing credit to improve her business operations. The challenges she is facing are bad debts and a lack of enough capital to expand her business, an issue she feels will be partly sorted by this new application/loan.
Rose is applying for a loan of 21,050 KES to buy additional stocks of charcoal. The extra income from the loan will be added to her savings to expand the business and improve her living standards.
