Rukia's story

Rukia lives in the Mariakani area of Coast Province, Kenya. She is 24 years old and owns a retail shop, a business which has been running for two years. She obtained the start up capital from her parents.

She learnt about Milango through friends who invited her to the group, and she joined with the aim of accessing credit to improve her business operations. Her main challenge is bad debts.

Rukia is applying for a loan of 21,050 Kenya shillings to add retail stock; e.g. rice, sugar, flour, cooking oil, etc. The extra income from the loan will be added to her savings to improve the living standards of her family. She also desires to own a larger retail shop.
