Chiziwi
Chiziwi 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 expenses are food and school fees.

She has operated a Kikois-selling business from home for the past two years, selling to her neighbours and passersby. Chiziwi faces a major challenge of seasonality in her business. She hopes to be self-reliant in the future.

With the Kshs 25,000 she wants to purchase bales of clothes for sale. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
