Milkah is married with two children. She owns a house that has electricity but no piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.
For the past two years, she has operated a retail business, selling household consumables like wheat flour, rice and cooking oil. She says that there are high transportation fees for these items.
Milkah is requesting a Kshs 50,000 loan to boost her retail business. She will purchase bundles of wheat flour, maize flour, tea leaves and cooking fat. She dreams of expanding to a wholesale shop in the near future.
