Mwanahamisi
Mwanahamisi is a divorced woman with one child who already graduated from school. She owns a house that has electricity but not piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food for the family.

For the past 15 years, she has operated a charcoal selling business, selling from home to her neighbours and passersby. Her major challenge is seasonality. During the rainy season, the availability of charcoal is low compared to demand. She dreams of expanding her business in the future.

With the Kshs 40,000 she wants to purchase sacks of charcoal for resale. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
