Mwanarusi is a married woman with five children, all of whom attend school. She own a house that has electricity but not piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.

Mwanarusi has been operating a café business for the past two years. She operates at the market, where market goers and school-going children are her potential customers. Mwanarusi faces a major challenge of seasonality in her business. She hopes to expand her business in the future.

With the Kshs 40,000 loan, Mwanarusi wants to purchase sacks of sugar, maize flour, wheat flour, vegetables and cooking oil. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
