Halima lives in Kongowea, Kenya. She sells local dresses that are known as “lesos” by the locals. She has been in this business for five years now, and she sees every possibility of the business growing to the next level. She also owns some rental houses and she gets income from them.
She is 32 years of age, married and blessed with three children. She knew Milango through a friend and now seeks a loan to buy 50 pieces of traditional “lesos.” The extra income that she raises from the loan will help her pay school fees for her children and improve the living standards of her family. The challenges that she faces in the business are competition and financing. These are the challenges that she fights every day in doing this business.
