Maurine lives in the Malindi area of Coast province, Kenya. She is a single business lady who owns a salon which she has been operating for over three years.
Maurine learnt about Milango through a friend and joined with an aim of accessing credit to improve business operations. The challenges she is facing are competition and lack of enough capital to expand the business, an issue she feels will be partly sorted by this new application/loan.
Maurine is applying for a loan of 10,700 Kenya shillings to buy additional stock of cosmetics, hair nutrients, and a dryer. The extra income from the loan will be added to her savings to help her acquire a college education.
