Everline lives with her two children ages 8 and 13 in Samburu, Kenya. There she sell household consumables like wheat flour, maize flour and sugar. She also sells farm produce like green vegetables, tomatoes, and potatoes.
Her goal is to have a wholesale outlet and a warehouse to distribute to other vendors. Right now, she is applying for a micro-loan, the first financial loan she's made with the Yehu Microfinance Trust, to buy wheat flour, maize flour, sugar and rice for resale. She intends to use these products to widen her clientele and make greater sales.
As this happens, her dream is to supply cereals in bulk to local markets to help guarantee a successful future for her children.
