Anastasia is a widow with four children, all of whom are adults. They own a house that has electricity but not piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food for the family.
For the past six years, she has operated a car wash and electronics sales business. Her potential customers are neighbours and passersby. Anastasia faces a major challenge of seasonality in her business. During the rainy season, the availability of customers is lower compared to the dry summer season. She dreams of opening another electronics shop in the future.
With the Kshs 40,000 she wants to purchase sockets and phone chargers. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
