Mwanakombo is a married woman. She has been in the clothing business for the last seven years. She buys clothes of different varieties from the city and sells them in her local community. She earns enough profit through her business to contribute well to the family income. Her husband is a businessman, but his income alone is not sufficient to meet the needs of the family members.
Mwanakombo is a mother of one child and is motivated to provide for her family. For the improvement of her business, she contacted Yehu Microfinance and applied for a loan of 50,000 KES. She intends to utilize this loan amount to purchase a greater variety of clothes in different colors and designs, taking into account the tastes and choices of her customers. In this way she will be able to increase her sales, which will ultimately help in generating more cash.
