Rose lives in the Kongowea area near Mombasa, Kenya. She is 23 years old, married and has a 3-year-old child. She has been in the tailoring business for the last three years and her business has been doing great. She learned about Milango through friends and now seeks a loan to buy cloth material, needles and thread for a new tailoring shop. She hopes that in the next five years she will have as many shops as possible so that she can be able to employ more people. The challenge in the business is competition, which is inevitable. The extra income that she will raise will improve her standard of living and that of her family.
