Riziki is a resident of Likoni, Kenya. She is a charcoal seller and has been doing this business for six years. Riziki is a married mother of two school-going children. She also earns some income from rental houses owned by the family.
She was introduced to Milango by her friends and is asking for a loan of 48,500 Kenya shillings to purchase a new stock of charcoal and firewood for sale. She will pay her children’s school fees from the extra income.
Despite the challenge of high cost of transportation, Riziki believes the business has a future and besides her getting the income to educate her children, she looks forward to owning a charcoal wholesale shop in future.
