Wayua
Wayua lives in the Malindi area of Coast Province, Kenya. She is a married business lady and a mother of two. Wayua runs a used clothes business, which she has been operating for eight years. In this business she sells shawls, handbags, pants, shoes, etc. She also owns a motorcycle, with which she carries out a transport business.

She learned about Milango through friends who invited her to a group meeting. She joined with the aim of accessing credit to improve her business operations. Her main challenge is competition. Wayua is applying for a loan of 21,100 Kenyan shillings to purchase additional stock of second-hand clothing and linens, like bed sheets, shoes and other clothing.

Her extra income from the loan will be added to her savings, to help open a sales stall in the town. Her dream is to open a larger boutique that could provide more income, for the education of her child who is in school.
