Nyamvula is a married woman with no children. Her husband is a businessman who helps provide for the family's basic needs. She has a house with neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food for her family and paraffin.
Nyamvula has operated a retail shop for the past twenty-eight years, and her potential clients are her neighbors and passersby. Transportation is a major challenge. She dreams of establishing a wholesale shop in the future.
With the 80,000 Kenyan shillings, she wants to purchase sugar bags and bales of corn flour. She decided to join Yehu because of the development with already existing clients.
