Grenter is a married woman with nine children (two boys and seven girls), all of whom attend school. They live in a rental house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food, rent bills and school fees.
For over twenty years, Grenter has operated a tailoring business, selling in a shop to her neighbors and passersby. Grenter has been able to educate her children and also provide basic needs. She faces a major challenge of competition from other tailors in her area of operation. She dreams of purchasing another sewing machine and expanding her business in the future.
With the Kshs 30,000, she wants to purchase 20 pieces of cloth materials and thread. She decided to work with Yehu Microfinance Trust to access funds to improve her living standards.
