Mwanamisi is a married woman with one boy who attends school. She owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.
For the past 11 years, she has operated a food vending business, selling from home to her neighbors and passersby. She faces a major challenge of seasonality and competition from other food vendors in the area. Mwanamisi dreams of establishing a restaurant business in the future.
With the KES 60,000 she wants to establish a food stall business, purchase maize flour, wheat flour and sugar. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
