Fatuma lives with her husband and five children. Her youngest was born this year. They live in their own house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Four years ago, of her own initiative, she started a business selling foodstuffs at the market. Over the years, thanks to her hard work, the business has grown and she meets other needs of her clients, getting into the sale of a variety of foods such as dumplings, peas, etc.

Her main priority is supporting her kids in their education. This is her second loan. She came to Yehu through a reference from a friend.

Fatuma has a small stall in a strategic place at the market where she keeps an inventory of her products and works in the morning, after preparing some of the foods to sell. Her business supports their household expenses, along with her husband's work.

She is taking a loan of KSH 25,000 to purchase wheat flour, oil, and sugar.
