Mwanarusi, who is 35, lives with her husband and two children - both of whom are in school. She has a business selling clothing for women and children, and has gained a lot of sales experience which has helped her increase her earnings. She trades from her home and door-to-door in her neighborhood. Her customers like her products due to the high quality, good prices, and above all, the excellent service.

She is an enterprising woman who is dedicated to her work and eager to succeed. She is always on the look-out for new opportunities to enable her to be one step closer to success, and she will never give up.

She has experienced increased demand and she wants to invest in her business in order to take advantage of this. In order to expand her business she has requested a loan of 20,000 KES from Yehu to purchase wholesale clothing. Mwanarusi has good repayment references and a strong moral character. She ensures that she will repay the debt and this will enable her to give her family a full support.
