Jackline is a married woman with three children, two of whom have graduated from school while one is still at school. She lives in a house that she owns: it has electricity but not piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.
For the past five years, she has operated a food stall business, selling to her neighbouring community members. She faces the major challenge of seasonality in her business. Jackline dreams of expanding her business in the future.
With the Kshs 60,000 loan, she wants to purchase a motorcycle to start a transportation business. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
