Fatuma
Fatuma is a married woman with six children, all of whom attend school. She owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is school fees.

For over fourteen years, she has operated a mat-weaving business, selling from home to her neighbours. In addition she also sells kerosene which contributes to her sources of income. Fatuma faces a major challenge of delayed payments by those who purchase goods on credit. She hopes to establish a cereals shop in the future.

With the Kshs 30,000 she wants to purchase palm leaves, materials used in weaving mats for sale. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
