A loan of $175 helped to buy a solar panel for her business.


Dorcas's story

Dorcas lives in Mombasa, Kenya. She is married and blessed with four children, all of whom attend school. She has been operating a salon and a cosmetics shop for the last ten years. She learned about Milango through a friend. She now seeks a loan to buy a solar panel. She has employed two people in her business and, to attract more customers, she may need to work at night, and she wants to reduce electricity costs with this solar panel. She has an ambition of owning more businesses in future. The challenge that she faces in the business is the low season, which causes very low customer turnout. Income in these times is very low. The loan will help her improve the standard of living of her family, and she will be able to pay school fees for her children.
