Mwanasha is married to Hassan and has three children, two of school age.

She sells coconuts wholesale from her home. As her sales increase, they generate more income for her. With her husband’s and children’s help, and much effort and sacrifice, they’re all getting ahead in life. She says that her work requires lots of effort and she does it all so that she can provide a better future for her children and so that they don’t have to face the same challenges that she did.

She is asking for this loan in order to buy coconuts, which will help her meet her customers' demands. She is grateful to Yehu for the opportunity it provides her.
