A loan of $975 helped to buy bundles of tea leaves to resell to her customers.


Catherine's story

Catherine lives in Mombasa, Kenya. She is married and has three school-going children. She has been vending tea leaves for the past five years, and she has employed one person to help her run the business.

She knew about Milango through friends, and now she seeks a loan, which she will use to buy bundles of tea leaves to resell. She doesn't have any other source of income, so this is what she does every day. She has an ambition to expand her business into a wholesale one, and to serve more people. This will enable her to earn higher income. The challenge that she faces in the business is competition. She is striving to improve her standard of living.
