Esther's story

Esther lives in Malindi area of Coast Province, Kenya. She is married and has two children, one of whom attends school. She owns a curio shop from where she sells artwork mostly loved by tourists. Besides this, she also owns a cosmetics shop. She has been in the business for six years.

Esther learnt 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, seasonal business climate (mainly tourists and visitors) and the high cost of purchasing stock.

Esther is applying for a loan of 21050 Kenya shillings to purchase more curios. The extra income from the loan will be added to her savings to improve the living standard of her family and also provide for their school fees.
