Mwendee lives in Malindi Kenya where she runs a business. She buys scrap metal items and sells to companies that recycle the items in to usable products. She also has a charcoal business that she does to improve her income. She is a wife and a mother of six children. Her major target is to be selling a lorry full of scrap metal in the next five years. One limiting factor that she has to deal with is financing. The other challenge that she faces is harrassment by the authorities while transporting the products. She found Milango through friends and now seeks a loan to buy scrap iron sheets, disposed wire and empty containers. The income that she will raise will go towards paying school fees for her children. This will also improve their living standards.
