Florence is a single woman with one daughter who attends school. She lives in a rental house that has electricity and piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and rent.
Florence operates a clothing business and she sells clothes from her home and also door to door to neighbors and passersby. Her major challenge is the change of seasons. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to help boost her business. Florence is requesting a loan of 25,000 KES to purchase a bale of clothing, including shirts and baby dresses. In the future, she hopes to establish a retail shop.
