Saumu is 36 years old. She is a friendly, good and responsible person. Her partner is a teacher, with whom she has two children. They live in a house they built together as a fruit of their labor. She makes a living selling khangas [African traditional cloth] door to door. Her work has brought in significant revenue, and she feels very comfortable doing it. Currently, she wants to increase her inventory but she does not have enough capital to do so.

This is her third loan with Yehu and Saumu is very happy with the financial support that will help her advance her business plans. In addition, she is committed to repaying the installments in a timely manner. With the amount requested, 20,000 Kenyan shillings, she will buy bales of khangas for sale.
