Umanzi's story

Umanzi lives in the Mariakani area of Coast province, Kenya. She is a married mother of five school-going children and owns a green grocery stall which she has been operating for two years. In this business, Umanzi sells greens, fruits, vegetables etc. Umanzi learnt about Milango through a friend and approached them with the goal of accessing credit to improve her business operations. The challenges she is facing are price fluctuation and inflation, purchasing stock, and the seasonal business climate. Umanzi is applying for a loan of 41,900 Kenya shillings to buy tomatoes and other vegetable wholesale. The extra income from the loan will be added to her savings to expand the business and to start other businesses and also open stalls in different areas.
