Saumu is married and the mother of three children who go to school. They live comfortably in their own house, though it has no electricity, nor does it have piped water. She doesn't support anyone besides her immediate family. She operates a motorcycle business and has hired someone to operate her motorcycle. Her challenges are the high cost of living and paying for her children's education.

Saumu will use this loan to buy spare parts and do general servicing of her motorcycle. In the future, she hopes to open a retail shop and also make sure that she has educated all her children. To do this, she promises to make payments on time so she can request more loans from Yehu.
