Bahati, 31, is a married woman with five children, all of whom attend school. She lives in a rental house that has electricity but not piped water. She has operated a food stall for the past seven years, selling from home to her neighbours and passers-by. She dreams of expanding her business to meet her customers' demand in the future.
With the 20,000 KES loan, she wants to purchase bundles of wheat flour, maize flour, sugar, and tea leaves. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
