Bendera is a resident of the Mariakani area of the Coast province in Kenya. She owns a food business which deals in selling of fish. She has been in the business for five years. She is a married mother of seven children.
Bendera was introduced to Milango by her friends and is applying for a loan of 21,050 Kenyan shillings to purchase fish for sale. The challenge that the business faces is high transport and price fluctuations.
She will use the extra income from the loan to pay for her children’s education.
