Everline is a married woman with four children, all of whom attend school. She owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is school fees.
For the past five years, she has operated a fruit and vegetable stall business, selling at the market to her neighbours and passersby. She faces a major challenge of high cost of transportation in her business. Everline dreams of establishing a wholesale shop in the future.
With the KES 30,000 she wants to purchase sacks of oranges, tomatoes, onions and mangoes. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
