Kunyetta is a married woman with nine children, all of whom attend school. She owns a house that neither has electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.
For the past two years, she has operated a fish selling business, selling from home to her neighbours and passersby. She faces a major challenge of seasonality in her place of operation. Kunyetta dreams of expanding her business to meet her customers' needs in the future.
With the 40,000 Kenyan Shillings (KES) she wants to purchase bundles of fish for resale. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
