Chiboga is a single woman who owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food.
For the past four months, she has operated a fish-selling business, selling at the market to her neighbors and passersby. She faces a major challenge of seasonality. During rainy season the availability of fish for sale is low. She dreams of purchasing a refrigerator to store fish for sale.
With the KES 20,000 she wants to purchase bundles of fish for sale. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
