Rachael's story

Rachael lives in Changamwe area of Coast Province, Kenya. She is married and has three children.

She owns a tailoring and retail shop that she has been operating for 15 years. She learned about Milango through friends who invited her to the group, and she joined with the aim of accessing credit to improve her business operations. Her main challenges are debts and high fuel and transport costs.

Rachael is applying for a loan of KES 96,550 to buy embroidery threads and tea leaf packets at wholesale. Her extra income from the loan will be added to her savings to pay school fees for her children and improve the living standards of the family.

Her dream is to expand to other towns to supply tea leaves.
