Rosemary lives in the Mariakani area of Coast Province, Kenya. She is married and has five children. She owns a retail shop for selling juice, bottled water, sweets, etc., and the business has been operating for five years. Rosemary started the business with her personal savings.
Rosemary learned about Milango through friends who invited her to the group and she joined the group with the aim of accessing credit to improve her business operations. Her main challenges are price fluctuations and inflation.
Rosemary is applying for a loan of 41,850 Kenyan shillings to buy stocks of items like flour, sugar, salt, and water. The extra income as a result of the loan will be added to her savings and used to help her repay the loan. Her future plan is to expand to a wholesale shop.
