Bibi, 28, is a married woman who owns a house that has electricity and piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and clothing.
For the past five years, she has operated a food stall business, selling from home to her neighbours and passersby. She faces a major challenge of seasonality in her business. She dreams of establishing a retail shop business in the future.
With the loan for Kshs 50,000, Bibi wants to purchase sacks of Irish potatoes and cooking fat oil. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
