Caroline is a married woman. She has one child who is still too young for school. She lives at a rental house that has electricity, but not piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are her rent bills and food for the family.
For the past three years, Caroline has operated a cereal selling business, selling in a shop to her local residents. She faces a major challenge of the high cost of transportation and the fluctuation of product pricing. She dreams of expanding her business in the future.
With the KES 40,000 she wants to purchase sacks of soya beans, maize and rice. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
