Lilian's story

Lilian is a resident of Mariakani in Coast Province, Kenya. She is married and has one child.

Lilian owns a food café, a business that she has been running for nine years. The food café mainly offers meals to the residents of the town. She started the business from the income she received while selling porridge.

She learned about Milango from a friend and joined the institution with an aim of accessing credit to improve the operations of her business. Her main challenge is lack of capital and fluctuating prices.

Lilian is applying for a loan of 41,850 Kenya shillings to buy a cooker, microwave, and foodstuffs like cereals, wheat flour, cooking oil, etc. The extra income from the loan will be added to her savings to improve on the living standard of the family.

She aspires to own a larger restaurant providing different kinds of food and conference facilities.
