Tatu is a married woman with 5 children, all of whom are adults. She owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food for the family.

She has operated an open food market business for the past 20 years, selling from home to her neighbours and passersby. She faces a major challenge of price fluctuation, especially when the price of wheat flour and beans goes high. She dreams of establishing a restaurant in the future.

With the 30,000 KES, she wants to purchase bundles of wheat flour and sacks of beans. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
