A loan of $375 helped to buy cooking pans and retail stock and to partly pay for her child’s school fees.


Mwenda's story

Mwenda, a resident of Kongowea, Coast province, Kenya, is a single mother of three school-going children. Mwenda has owned and operated a food cafe for four years. She sells cooked potatoes, beverages and buns in her stall.

Mwenda learned about Milango from an employee and joined the institution with the aim of accessing credit to improve her business operations. Her main challenges are competition and lack of funds to grow the business. Mwenda is applying for a loan of 31,500 Kenya shillings to purchase cooking pans and food retail stock and to partly pay for her child’s school fees. The extra income from the loan will be added to her savings to improve her family's living standard, especially the children's education. Mwenda aspires to own a café in the future.
