Magongo's story

Magongo lives in the Mombasa area of Kenya's Coast Province. She is married and has two children. Magongo owns a service stall which sells tap water. She has been in operation for four years. Magongo also sells charcoal. Magongo learnt about Milango through a friend. Her main challenge is the unreliable water supply; she plans to solve this by buying a water tank. Magongo is applying for a loan of KES41,850 to buy charcoal for resale. She believes that her business has improved enough to meet the required loan repayments despite the high competition. She hopes the loan will enable her to effectively provide for her family.
