Millka’s story

Milka is a single mother of two children. She is 37 years old, and her children are 17 and 14 years old. They live in Nanyuki. Milka has been making pudding and blended juice, which she sells to her customers, and they enjoy them. She likes her job since it keeps her occupied and gives her good profit as well. This business helps her to cater for all the needs of her family.

Her challenge is that her blender broke down. With this loan, Milka will buy a juicer and more fruits, to meet the needs of her customers. This will boost her business, since she will be more effective and efficient in her services. She will use her profit to pay her loan and cater for her family.

This is Milka’s second loan, after she repaid her first on time. Her dream is to buy a plot of land and educate her children to university.
