A loan of $725 helped to buy a stock of new clothes.


Michael's story

Michael lives in Mombasa, a coastal town in Kenya. He is married and has one child aged 2 yrs. 8 months, and has been operating a clothes shop since 1999. He was introduced to Milango last year by his friend and has continued to access credit through his group.

A loan of Ksh 70,000 will help Michael restock his shop with new clothes. He believes that with the Christmas festivities around the corner, he will make good sales over December and make savings for the education of his child next year.
