Mwanjuma, a married woman with one child who is enrolled in school, has been selling cashew nuts at the market for the last two years. Earnings from her spouse are the family's other source of income. Mwanjuma describes seasonality as a major challenge, and says that food is her biggest monthly expense. She lives in a family house that has neither electricity nor piped water.
Mwanjuma, who joined Yehu to receive access to loans to expand her business, is requesting Ksh 30000 to purchase more sacks of cashew nuts to sell.
