Kadzo is a resident of Likoni, Kenya. She is a charcoal seller and has been doing this business for ten years. Kadzo is a married mother of five children, two of whom are grown ups and the youngest two of whom are in school. The family also earns some income from rental houses.
Kadzo was introduced to Milango by her friends and is asking for a loan of 21,050 Kenyan shillings to purchase more stock of charcoal and fuel wood for resale. She will pay for her children’s school fees from the extra income she earns as a result of this loan.
Despite the challenge of high transportation costs, Kadzo believes her business has a future and, in addition to earning income to educate her children, she looks forward to owning a wholesale shop in future.
