Bikaje
Bikaje lives in the Likoni area of Coast Province, Kenya. She is married and has four school-going children.

Bikaje owns a food café, a business which has been running for six years. The café mainly sells cooked food. She also earns some income from the rental houses owned by the family. The area has a high population, most of whom work on the island and return to the mainland in the evenings and find little time to prepare meals. Besides these, she also sells charcoal, clothes and fuel wood.

Bikaje learnt about Milango through advertisements, and she joined with the aim of accessing credit to improve her business operations. Her main challenges are price fluctuations.

Bikaje is applying for a loan of 32,600 Kenya shillings to add retail and food stock, e.g., charcoal, fuel wood, clothes, rice, cereals, wheat flour, cooking fat, etc.

The extra income from the loan will be added to Bikaje’s savings to improve on the living standard of her family and pay school fees for her children. She looks forward to owning/opening other cafés in the area.
