Nyamvula is a widowed woman with six children, two 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 nine years, she has operated a mat weaving and selling business, selling at retail to her neighbours and passersby. She faces a major challenge of high cost of transportation in her business. She dreams of establishing a wholesale to sell her mats in the future.
With the KES 40,000 loan, she wants to purchase weaving materials and to pay school fees for her children who attend school. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
