Tabu lives in the Kongowea area of Coast Province, Kenya. She is married and has two children. She owns a charcoal vending business, which she has been operating for five years. In this business, she sells charcoal, firewood, etc.
She learned about Milango through friends who invited her to the group, and she joined with the aim of accessing credit to improve her business operations. Her main challenge is lack of capital, a problem she sees resolved through this loan.
Tabu is applying for a loan of 21,050 Kenya shillings to buy energy saving cooking stoves for sale in her business. She will use the extra income to improve the living standards of her family.
