Emma
Emma is a married woman with three 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 her children.

She has operated a boda boda (motorcycle) business for the past few months. In addition, she also operates a retail shop which contributes to her other source of income. Emma faces a major challenge of seasonality in her business. She hopes to expand her business and sell as wholesale in the future.

With the KES 40,000 she wants to purchase another boda boda (motorcycle) and bundles of maize flour for her retail shop. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
