Bahati is married with four children, all of whom attend school. Her husband is employed and he provides the family with basic needs from his earnings. For the last two years, she has operated a water distribution business, selling from home to her neighbours and passersby.
Bahati faces a major challenge of seasonality and electricity black outs. During the dry hot season, the available water for distribution is inadequate to meet the customers' demand. She hopes to expand her business and satisfy her customers' needs.
With the Kshs 20,000 she wants to purchase water pipes and water purifiers. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
