Jedidah is 54 years old and owns a retail shop in Kongowea, Kenya. She is married and has been blessed with five children, two of whom are teenagers. She has been running the retail shop for the last three years and also sells food. Jedidah says that in five years she wants to own a wholesale shop and be able to concentrate on it fully.
The challenge that she faces in running her business is lack of financing. She knew about Milango through a friend who invited her to join so she could secure financing for her business. She now seeks a loan to buy bundles of maize flour and wheat flour. The extra income that she will raise from the loan use will go towards improving their living standards.
