Agnes's story

Agnes is a resident of Malindi, Kenya. She owns rental houses and has been in this business for the last seven years. Agnes is married and has six school-going children. She is also a farmer, keeping dairy animals and rabbits.
Agnes was introduced to Milango by her friends and joined to access credit for business operations. She is applying for a loan of 41,850 Kenya shillings to renovate her houses and also pay for her children's school fees. The challenge in the current business has been delays in rent payments.
The additional income from the invested loan will help her continue paying the required school fees.
