Anaciata is a married woman with two children, all of whom attend school. She lives in a rental house that has electricity and piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is school fees.
She has operated a poultry business for the past two years, selling to her neighbours, passersby and restaurant operators. Anaciata cites the outbreak of diseases for the chicks, and the high cost of transportation as her major challenges in the business. She hopes to buy more chicks and supply the hotels in the future.
With the Kshs 40,000 she wants to purchase chicks, chicken feed and chicken medicine. She decided to join Yehu because it does not require much collateral.
