Agnes is a single mother of three children; two attend school while one is still too young. She lives in a rental house that has electricity and piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food for the family.
Agnes has operated a wine and spirits business, selling at the market to her neighbors and passersby. She also operates a clothes sales business which provides her with another source of income. She faces a challenge of inflation in her business.
Agnes plans to use this KES 70,000 loan to purchase more stock of wines and spirits for resale. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
