Salma's story

Salma is a resident of the Kongowea area of Coast province, Kenya. She is a married mother of five school-going children. She owns a water selling point, a business that she has been operating for six months. Besides this, Salma also sells food.

She learned about Milango through a friend and joined the company with an aim of accessing credit to improve the operations of her business. Her main challenges occur when the pipes and pumps get damaged.

Salma is applying for a loan of 21,050 Kenya shillings to fit a water pipe and buy additional stock of food. The extra income from the loan will be added to her savings to pay school fees for her children. She aspires to purchase a water pump in the future.
