Kaphemba is a married woman with 7 children, three of whom attend school while four are married. She lives at her own house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.
For the past 10 years, she has operated a dry fish selling business, selling to neighbors. Her major challenge is the high cost of transportation from rural areas to her place of operation. She dreams of having a wholesale business in future.
With KES 30,000 she wants to purchase sacks of dry fish for resale. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
