Changawa is a married mother of eight children, ages 12 to 30, four of whom are in school. She earns a living through the sale of coconuts, selling through door to door. She has been in this business for the last two years. She replenishes her stock whenever necessary.
To strengthen her working capital and meet the needs of her customers, she is requesting a loan from Yehu. This credit will allow her to support her children’s schooling and to help her husband with the household expenses. Changawa intends to start a vegetable stall using the requested loan. She will be able to purchase fruits and vegetables.
