Uchi
Uchi is a married woman with seven children, all of whom attend school. She owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.

For the past two years she has operated a brooms-selling business. She sells at the market to her neighbors and passersby. Her major challenge is seasonality. During the rainy season it becomes difficult for her to operate. She dreams of expanding her business in the future.

With the 40,000 KES she wants to purchase bundles of brooms for resale. She decided to work with Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
