Everlyne is a single woman with one child who lives in a rental house that has electricity and piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food for her family.
For past two years, she has operated a retail shop business, selling to her neighbours and passersby. She faces the major challenge of seasonality in her place of operation. She dreams of establishing a wholesale business in the future.
With her KES 50,000 loan, she wants to purchase bundles of wheat flour, maize flour, and sugar to sell. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
