Mwanajuma is characterized as a responsible and hard working woman who has a great desire to improve herself personally. She has a convenience store - a kiosk - located in her house, which she has had for three years since she started making a living with this business. A kiosk is a small store that sells daily consumption products in small quantities including coffee packets, rice, sugar, oil, soap, eggs, salt, beans and bread.
She began the business with the goal to have a job so that she could take care of herself and meet her household expenses. The loan's purpose is to invest in working capital and stock the business in order to satisfy her customers. Mwanajuma has worked with Yehu Microfinance and has demonstrated her responsibility in paying on time and in full.
