Hafswa is married to a businessman called Nyandu. The couple has three children under their care, all of whom are in school. Together with her husband, Hafswa ensures that the various household expenses are met. To cover these expenses, she works as a food vendor in a neighborhood of Kenya. In addition to this business, she also owns a rental house that earns her income. Hafswa has been working in this area for six years and has a number of reliable customers.
To better meet the needs of her ever growing customer base, and to make more profits, Hafswa has requested a second loan from Yehu to buy a baler of wheat and maize flour, 10 litres of cooking oil, and 6kgs of beans. Her first loan was successfully repaid.
