Rachael lives in the Kongowea area of Coast Province, Kenya. She is married and has two children. She owns a green grocer, a business which she has been operating for two years.
Rachael learned about Milango through friends who invited her to the group. She joined with the aim of accessing credit to improve her business operations. Her main challenge is lack of sufficient funds.
Rachael is applying for a loan of 21,950 Kenya shillings to buy vegetables and fruit wholesale. Her extra income from the loan will be added to her savings to pay school fees for her children and improve her family's living standards. Her dream is to see her business expand.
