Mealii, 30 years old and married, lives with her husband and her 6-month-old child in their own home. She sells women's, men's, and children's clothing. She sells a variety of shirts, skirts, suits. She has done this work for many years since she was trained as a tailor and now has a lot of experience which helps her increase her income. She sells her clothing from her home. She has many regular clients that prefer buying from her because she always provides what they need, offers affordable prices, sells only high-quality items, and provides excellent service.

She is an entrepreneurial woman that works very hard. She always fights for what she wants and never stops until she is successful. In the last few months, demand for her clothing has increased. She wants to take advantage of this opportunity but doesn't have the capital she needs to purchase more clothing to sell and more materials for mending clothes. Therefore, she is seeking a loan from Yehu amounting to Ksh 10,000 so that she can purchase more clothing. She is very responsible. She assures us that she will be able to repay the loan and at the same time she is confident that she will be able to better provide for her household.
