Mgeni is a divorced woman with three children who are all grown up. She owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food for her family and medical expenses.

She has operated a water selling business (borehole) for the past two years. Her potential clients are her neighbors. She faces a major challenge of seasonality where during the rainy season there is low demand because people trap rain water for use. She dreams of owning a well-built borehole in the future.

With the Kshs 35,000 she wants to purchase blocks for construction of her borehole. She decided to join Yehu to uplift her family's standard of living.
