Miriam
Miriam is a married woman with four children, one of whom still attends school while others have graduated. She rents a house that has electricity and piped water, and her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.



For over ten years, Miriam has operated her restaurant business, her customers being town dwellers and passersby. She faces the major challenge of competition from other restaurant operators and so hopes to expand and have a bigger restaurant in the future.



Miriam first joined Yehu to get a loan to start her business, and with the Kshs 70,000 loan she is now requesting, she will purchase a freezer, 10 bundles of maize flour, 5 sacks of beans and 10 sacks of sugar.
