Asha
Asha is a married woman with one child who is 37 years old. She owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food for the family.

She has operated a food vending business and coconut selling for the past five years, selling at the market to her neighbours and passersby. Asha faces a major challenge of seasonality. During the rainy season, the availability of food for sale is low and the demand is high.

With the Kshs 30,000, she wants to purchase building materials to renovate her food stall and add sacks of coconuts. Asha decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
