Rahma lives in the Likoni area of Coast Province, Kenya. She is a married mother of one child. Rahma owns a grocery stall selling business which has been running for one year. She obtained the capital to start the business from employment as a teacher at a nearby school.
She learned about Milango through friends who invited her to the group and she joined with the aim of accessing credit to improve her business operations. Her main challenges are high transport costs and inflation.
Rahma is applying for a loan of 21,050 Kenya shillings to buy groceries like fruits and vegetables. The extra income from the loan will be added to her savings to improve on the living standard of her family and grow the business further.
