Mercy lives in the town of Likoni with her husband and 2 children, both of whom attend school. In her store, she makes soaps and supplies for the neighboring families for their daily use.
Everyone in her family knows the tasks associated with the business. Therefore, she gets assistance in her business from her husband who offers his services and generates more income. Mercy is a hardworking person who is always involved in productive activities.
To further establish her business, she is seeking a Kiva loan and coming to Yehu Microfinance for her fifth financing. With this loan, she will purchase supplies for making soaps in higher volumes than she normally does so that she can buy at substantial discounts and continue being competitive by taking advantage of market opportunities to support herself and make each day more successful.
