Dorothy is a married woman with four children. Three of them attend school, and one is still too young for school. She owns a house that has piped water but no electricity. Her greatest monthly expense is food for the family.

For the past ten years, she has operated a retail shop business, selling to local customers. Dorothy sells items for household consumption, such as maize flour, sugar, and tea leaves. Her other source of income is a mobile phone charging business. One of the major challenges Dorothy faces in her business is the high cost of transportation.

With the Kshs 40,000 loan she wants to buy one sack of sugar, two bundles of wheat flour, and two bundles of maize flour. She decided to join Yehu to get access to loans to boost her business.
