Rose
Rose is a married woman with eight children; six attend school while two have graduated from school. She lives at a rental house that has neither electricity nor piped water.

For the past four years, she has operated a retail shop business, selling retail to her neighbours and passersby. In addition she also sells poultry meat to restaurant operators. Her major challenge is the high cost of transportation and seasonality in the business.

With this loan of 75,000 Kenya shillings (KES), she wants to purchase bundles of wheat flour, maize flour, rice, and chicks for her poultry business. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
