Maria is a resident of Mariakani, Kenya. She is a married mother of five children and runs a pub/bar which has been in operation for 13 years. She obtained the business capital from the sale of vegetables.
Maria was introduced to Milango by her friends and is asking for a loan of 21,100 Kenya shillings to buy more crates of liquor for sale.
Despite the inflation which has reduced the public's disposable income, Maria believes she can earn and save extra income for the education of her children, provide income for her employees and also use part of the money to buy a piece of land.
