Salome is a resident of Mariakani, Kenya. She is a charcoal seller and has been doing this business for four years. Salome is a married mother of two school-going children. She was introduced to Milango by her friends and is asking for a loan of 21,050 Kenya shillings to purchase a new stock of charcoal and packaging bags for sale. She will pay for her children’s school fees from the extra income.
Despite the challenge of high cost of transportation, Salome believes the business has a future and besides getting the income to educate her children, she looks forward to owning a wholesale shop in the future.
