Francisca is a married woman with two children, all of whom attend school. She lives in a rental house that has electricity and piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.

She has operated a natural juice drinks selling business for the past six years, selling in a shop to her neighbors and passersby. In addition she also operates a clothes selling business which is another source of income. Francisca faces the major challenge of seasonality in her business. She hopes to expand her businesses and maintain her customers in the future.

With the 80,000 KES she wants to purchase a refrigerator, fruits for making juice and Kikoi’s (traditional cotton waist/shoulder wraps) to sell. She decided to join Yehu because of its good customer relations.
