Mwanasha is a married woman with four children, one of whom still attends school while three already graduated from school. She owns a house that neither has electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.
For the past fifteen years, she has operated a food stall sales business, selling from home to her neighbours and passersby. Mwanasha faces a major challenge of competition from other food stall operators. She hopes to expand her business in the future.
With the Kshs 27,000 she wants to purchase a bundle of wheat flour, sugar, cowpeas and coconuts. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
