Mwanasiti is a married woman with six children, all of whom graduated from school. She owns a house that has electricity but not piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is electricity bills.
She has operated a fresh water distribution business for over two years; her potential customers are neighbours. Mwanasiti faces a major challenge of competition from other water distributors in the area. She hopes to expand and supply to large groups in the area.
She decided to join Yehu to get loans to boost her business. With the Kshs 80,000 she wants to purchase water pumps and also purchase a motorbike to start a motorbike business.
