Agnetta is a married woman with one child who is still young for school. She owns a house that has electricity but not piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food, school fees and clothing. She has operated a retail shop business for the past five years, selling in a shop to her neighbours and passersby. Agnetta faces a major challenge of competition from other retail shop operators. She hopes to expand her business in the future.
With the KES 40,000 she wants to purchase bundles of wheat flour, maize flour, cooking oil and sugar for sale. She decided to work with Yehu to access loans to improve her business.
