Tatu is married with two children, one of whom attends school while one is still too young for school. She owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food for the family.
She has operated a beauty salon business for the six years; her potential customers are women. Tatu faces a major challenge of seasonality, but during the festive season she receives many customers in her beauty salon. She decided to join Yehu to access loans and invest in her business.
With the Kshs 30,000 she wants to purchase a blow dryer for her beauty salon. She dreams of establishing her own stall in the future.
