Dorcas's story

Dorcas lives in the Mombasa area of Coast Province, Kenya. She is married and has four children, all of whom are school-going. She owns a retail shop, a business that has been running for eight years. In the business, she sells foodstuffs, household goods, and the like. 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 perishability and effect of slow seasons. Dorcas is applying for a loan of 74,500 KES (Kenya shillings) to buy grocery stock, including fruits and vegetables. The extra income resulting from the loan will be added to her savings to improve the living standards of her family and pay school fees for her children. She aspires to open a mini-wholesale store.
