Elizabeth is married and has one child who attend school. She lives at a rental house that has neither electricity, nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food for the family.
For the past year, she has operated a grocery selling business, selling from home to her neighbours and passersby. She faces a major challenge of the high cost of transportation. She dreams of expanding her business and establishing a retail shop.
With the KES 40,000 she wants to purchase sacks of green vegetables, tomatoes and potatoes. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
