Mshindani is a married woman with five children, one of whom still attends school. She owns a house that has electricity and piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and transportation.
For the past 3 years, Mshindani has been operating a clothes business, selling from door to door to her neighbours and passersby. Mshindani faces a challenge in the high cost of transportation while moving from door to door to sell clothes. She dreams of becoming self-reliant and providing for her family in the future.
With this loan of 50,000 Kshs, Mshindani wants to purchase bundles of clothes for resale. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
