Salama is a married woman with one six-year-old child who attends school. She owns a house that has electricity but not piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food for the family.
For the past seven years she has operated a business selling clothes door-to-door to her neighbors and passersby. She faces a major challenge of seasonality in her business. She dreams of establishing a boutique business in the future.
With the loan of 50,000 Kenyan shillings (KES) she wants to purchase men's, women's, and children's clothing. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
