Naomi lives in the Mombasa area of Coast Province, Kenya. She is a married business lady. She owns a retail shop--a business which she has been running for almost two years. She sells foodstuffs, household goods, etc.
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 challenge is a lack of having adequate money for a business expansion--a problem she sees partly sorted with this loan.
Naomi is applying for a loan of 21,050 Kenya Shillings to buy soft drinks, maize, beans, rice and cooking fat. The extra income from the loan will be added to her savings to improve on the living standards of her family. She aspires to own a wholesale business.
