Fatuma is a married woman with three children. Two of her children attend school and the other one is still too young for school. Her greatest monthly expenses are school fees and clothing.
For the past year, she has operated a vegetable stall business, selling at the market to her neighbors and passerby. She faces a major challenge of seasonality. During the hot dry season, the availability of fruit for sale is minimal. She dreams of establishing another business in the future.
With the KSHS 10,000, she wants to purchase sacks of vegetables, potatoes and tomatoes. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
