Hellen's story

Hellen lives in the Likoni area of the Coast Province in Kenya. She is married and has two school-aged children. She owns a green grocer which she has been operating for five years. She sells tomatoes, sugar, onions and other products.

She learned 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 challenges are price fluctuations and the high costs of transporting her goods.

Hellen is applying for a loan of 31,450 Kenyan shillings to buy vegetables and fruits in wholesale. She will invest the extra income from the loan towards becoming a major supplier of groceries in the area.
