Mwanaisha is a married woman with six children, three of whom attend school while three graduated from school. She owns a house that has electricity but not piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food, electricity, clothing and school fees.
She has operated a food stall business for the past three years, selling from home to her neighbors and passersby. Mwanaisha faces a major challenge of competition in her business. She hopes to establish a retail shop in the future.
With the 40,000 Kenyan shillings, she wants to purchase sacks of Irish potatoes, bundles of wheat flour, and cooking oil. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to improve her living standards.
