Patricia lives in the Kilifi area of Coast Province, Kenya. She is married and has two school-age children. She owns a clothing business which she has been operating for five years. She also sells detergents.
She learned about Milango through friends who invited her to the group, and she joined with the goal of accessing credit to improve her business operations. Her main challenges are competition and lack of funds.
Patricia is applying for a loan of 41,850 Kenyan shillings (KES) to purchase additional stock of secondhand clothes. Her extra income from the loan will be added to her savings to help pay for her children’s school fees. Her dream is to open a larger boutique.
