A loan of $750 helped to buy sugar, maize flour, cooking oil and soft drinks.


Magdalene's story

Magdalene lives in Changamwe, Kenya. She is married and has three children, one of them in college. Magdalene owns a retail shop which has been in operation for four years. She also blends fruits and sells the fresh juice.

Magdalene was introduced to Milango by her friend and she is applying for a loan of KES 70,000 to buy sugar, maize flour, cooking oil and soft drinks. Magdalene's main challenge is the rising cost of basic commodities; most people can hardly purchase as they did previously.

Magdalene hopes to own a large store in the future and is committed to owning a wholesale shop in the future. The additional income obtained from this loan will help her pay school fees, invest in shares for old age and purchase a plot/house.
