Pheny is a married woman with three children, all of whom attend school. She lives in a rental house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is school fees. Her husband is a room steward and he contributes to his family's basic needs.
For the past year, she has operated a greengrocer business, selling in a shop and from her home to her neighbours. Pheny faces a major challenge in competition from other greengrocers. She dreams of opening a wholesale greengrocery in the future.
With the Kshs 20,000 she wants to purchase 2 crates of tomatoes, 4 crates of bananas, 2 crates of onions and carrots. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
