Scolasticah is a widowed woman with five children, all attending school. She operates a poultry business, and has been in the business for five years. She owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. She sells her goods both from home and at the market.

Scolasticah plans to use the KES 40000 to buy chicks for her business. The high transportation cost of poultry feed is her major drawback, and she describes school fees to be her greatest monthly expense. She joined Yehu to get capital to boost her business.
