Previously a farmer, Kanga has operated a clothes-selling business for the last two years, retailing her goods at the market in Dziweni, the village on the south coast of Kenya where she resides. She is married and has three children, all of whom are in school.

Kanga describes high transportation costs as her major business challenge. She also lacks sufficient capital to expand her business, which was also a motivation for her joining Yehu so as to acquire loans. She is now requesting a loan of Ksh 10000 to purchase bundles of clothes for sale.

Kanga, who owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water, dreams of opening a retail shop for selling clothes in the future.
