Mwanaisha is a married woman with six children, all of whom graduated from school. She owns a house that has electricity and piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food for the family.
Mwanaisha has operated a boda boda (motorcycle transport) business for the past two years. Her local neighbours are potential customers. Her major challenge is seasonality. She hopes to purchase a matatu (van/small bus) in the future.
With the Kshs 60,000, she wants to purchase a motorcycle for her transport business. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
