Mamuna is a married woman with five children, all of whom attend school. She owns a house that has electricity and piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is school fees.
She has operated a natural fruit-juice making stand for the past two years, selling from home to her neighbors and passersby. Her husband also helps cover the family's basic needs. The major challenge Mamuna faces in her business is high transport costs. She hopes to be self-reliant in her business in the future.
With the 30,000 KES, she wants to pay school fees. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to improve her business.
