Elizabeth is 23 and not married. She lives in Malindi, about 150km north of Mombasa. She has been operating a retail shop for the last one and a half years and now she seeks a loan of 31,500 KES to expand into the food business. When she is free, she does hair plaiting which also provides her with extra income.
Elizabeth's challenge is the lack of customers, especially in low seasons. She learned about Milango from friends and she decided to join. The loan will enable her to do business and be able to go back to school in the future, which is her ultimate plan.
