Santa is a thirty-eight-year-old single woman with three children who attend school. She lives in a rental house that has electricity but no piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and clothing.
For the past six months, she has operated a food stall business, selling from home to her neighbours and passersby. She faces a major challenge of seasonality where she does her business. She dreams of expanding her business in the future.
With the KES 15,000 she wants to purchase bundles of wheat flour, maize flour and sugar. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
