Mwanamisi, age 23, describes herself as a happy, enterprising person who is, above all, working very hard to get her son ahead. Mwanamisi lives with her husband and son in the town of Msambweni, Coast province.

She has a small store in her home. It is her main source of income. At the moment, she has a good customer base, but she has a problem: she does not have a good variety of products, so her customers go elsewhere. For this reason, she is requesting a loan from Yehu for the purchase of basic staples such as: rice, flour, beans, sugar, oil, etc, so that her customers will have a good variety to choose from. This investment will allow her to expand her customer base, increase her sales, and increase her income. This will help her to support her family.

Mwanamisi dreams of expanding a her retail shop to a bigger store.
