Jane lives in the Mombasa area of Coast Province, Kenya. She is a single mother of one school-going child. Jane owns a food stall, a business which she has been operating for three years, and mainly deals in the sale of vegetables. This is her only source of income currently.
Jane learnt about Milango through friends who invited her to the group. She joined with the aim of accessing credit to improve her business operations. Jane is applying for a loan of 36,650 Kenyan shillings to buy food stock like fruits and vegetables for sale. She will use the extra income from the loan to improve the living standards of her family – especially education.
