Mwanasiti is a married woman with three children, all of whom are adults. She owns a house that has electricity but no running water and her greatest monthly expense is food for her family. For the past ten years, Mwanasiti has operated a retail shop, selling goods at the market to her neighbors and community members. Her major business challenge is seasonality.
Mwanasiti decided to work with Yehu to access loans to boost her business. She is requesting a 30,000 KES loan to purchase sacks of wheat flour, sugar, rice and beans to sell. In the future, Mwanasiti hopes to expand her business.
