Binti Mohamed is a married woman with one child who attends school. She owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food for the family.
For the past six years, she has operated a cashew nuts selling business, selling at the market to her neighbors and passersby. Her major challenge is seasonality in production of cashew nuts. She dreams of selling cashew nuts wholesale in the future.
With the KES 40,000, she wants to purchase four sacks of cashew nuts for resale. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
