Mwanamkasi works selling fish in a store, selling to the neighborhood. She's a very hardworking woman with a great desire to get ahead and have a better life. She'll be able to achieve this only through her effort because she has no financial support from anybody. Her business is located in the central market of the town where she lives. It's very well known because her merchandise is of very good quality and she sells it at prices people can afford. She also sells dumplings and fried potatoes at one of the primary schools. This is also a place where they meet for their group center meetings.
Mwanamkasi is requesting a loan from Yehu to invest in buying more fish, wheat flour, baking powder, and cooking oil. This way she hopes to be the first option for the people who need such goodies.
About Yehu Microfinance Trust
