Mwanajuma is a married woman with four children, all of whom attend school. She owns a house that has electricity and piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is school fees.
Mwnajuma has been operating a food vending business for the past six years, selling retail to her neighbours and passersby. In addition, she also owns rental houses which contributes to her income. Mwanajuma faces a major challenge in the seasonality of her business. She dreams of expanding and establishing more rental houses in the future.
With this loan for Kshs 40,000, Mwnajuma wants to purchase coconuts and bundles of dried fish for her food market. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
