Joyce lives in the Malindi area of Coast Province, Kenya. She is married and owns a curio shop where she sells artwork that is loved by tourists. Her business has been running for five years.
Joyce learned about Milango Financial Services through friends who invited her to the group. Her goal is to improve her business operations. Her main challenges are price fluctuations, inflation, a seasonal tourist trade and the high cost of purchasing stock.
Joyce is applying for a loan of 21,100 KES to purchase more curios to sell in her shop. The extra income from the loan will be added to her savings to improve the living standard of her family.
