Alice is a married woman with two children, both of whom attend school. She lives in a rental house that has electricity and piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food for the family.
For the past five years she has operated a beauty salon business, and her potential customers are neighbours, especially women. She faces a major challenge of seasonality. During festive season she gets lots of customers in her business. She dreams of expanding her business in the future.
With the Kshs 20,000 she wants to purchase hair chemicals for use in her beauty salon. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
