Judith is a married woman with two children, all of whom attend school. She lives at a rental house that has electricity and piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is school fees.
For the past one year, she has operated a second hand clothes selling business, selling from home to her neighbours and passersby. Judith faces a major challenge of seasonality in her business. During holiday season the demand for clothes is higher compared to the month of January to July where the demand is lower. She dreams of establishing more businesses in the future.
With the Kshs 40,000 she is requesting, she wants to purchase two bales of second hand clothes for resale. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
