Mwanahamisi is a married woman with one child who is still too young for school. She owns a house that has electricity and piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food for the family.
For the past 13 years, she has operated a business selling charcoal and kikois. She sells these items as retail from her home to neighbors and passersby. A major challenge Mwanahamisi faces in her business is the high cost of transportation. She dreams of expanding her business.
With the 80,000 Kenyan shillings (KES) she is requesting, she wants to purchase five sacks of charcoal and bundles of kikois to sell. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
