Mercy lives in the Likoni area of Coast province, Kenya. She is a single businesswoman and owns a detergent business, hawking the products. The business has been operating for five years.
Mercy learnt about Milango through a friend who invited her to the group, and she joined with an aim of accessing credit to improve on her business operations. Her main challenge is inflation.
Mercy is applying a loan of 63,850 Kenya shillings to buy soap-making items and chemicals for making detergents. She will use the extra income to improve on her living standard. She hopes to own a factory where she could supply her products to her customers.
