Matilda lives in the Kongowea area of Coast Province, Kenya. She is married and has two school-going children. She owns a clothing shop that she has been operating for two years. She also runs a retail shop.
She learned about Milango through friends, with the aim of accessing credit to improve her business operations. Her main challenge is competition.
Matilda is applying for a loan of 15,900 Kenya shillings to buy more clothes for the business. Her extra income from the loan will be added to her savings to improve on the business operation and expand it. She hopes to expand to the wholesale level.
