Margaret is a married woman with six children, four of whom attend school. She owns a house that neither has electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food for the family.
For the past two years, she has operated a water-vending business. She also sells in a shop and from home. Margaret faces a major challenge of seasonality in her business. During the hot dry season, the availability of water for selling is lower. She dreams of expanding her business in the future.
With the Kshs 40,000 loan, she wants to purchase 10 plastic containers for the distribution of water and ground nuts for sale. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business in the future.
