Ega
Ega, 56, is a married woman with three children, all of whom attend school. She owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.

For the past ten years, she has operated a retail shop business, selling to her neighbours and passersby. She also does farming, which leads to her other source of livelihood. She faces a major challenge of the high cost of purchasing products. She dreams of expanding her farming business.

With the KES 30,000, Ega wants to purchase bundles of wheat flour, maize flour, and rice for resale. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
