Caroline lives in Likoni area south of Mombasa, Kenya. She is 29 years old and single.
She sells charcoal in the nearby market and she has been in the business for two months. She knew Milango through friends and she decided to join so that she could save and be able to access funds for the business.
She now seeks a loan to buy sacks of charcoal for sale. She hopes that in the next five years the business will become wholesale. The challenge that she faces is that some suppliers cheat by selling her bad charcoal. The extra income that she will raise will improve her standard of living.
