Mealii lives Changamwe area of Coast province. She is married and has five children, of whom four attend school. She owns a medical clinic, a business she has been operating for ten years now.
She learned about Milango through a friend, who invited her to the group. She joined the group with the aim of accessing credit to improve the operation of the business. The challenge she is facing is the effect of the high cost of living on the service.
Mealii is applying for a loan of 41,850 Kenyan shillings to buy medical supplies, like drugs, syringes, and so on. Her extra income from the loan will be added to her savings and used to pay school fees for her children. Her future plan is to open a referral hospital.
