Caro is a married woman who lives in a rental house that has electricity but not piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and rent.
For the past three years, Caro has operated a clothing sales business, selling at wholesale and at the market to her neighbours and passersby. She also operates a retail shop which provides her with another source of income. Caro faces a major challenge of high transportation costs in her business. She dreams of expanding and becoming a wholesale supplier in the future.
Caro plans to use this KES 20,000 loan to purchase bundles of clothes, wheat flour and maize flour. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
