Biasha is married to a businessman with two children: one attends school and the other one is too young for school. She rents a house with electricity and piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food.

Biasha has been operating her business of selling kikois (pieces of colored cloth used as clothing) for the last seven years by going from door to door, women being her potential customers. She faces the major challenge of seasonality in her business. With the Kshs 20,000 she wants to purchase a bale of kikois.

Biasha hopes to build rental houses in future. She decided to work with Yehu so as to get financial support and improve her business.
