Umazi
Umazi is a widow with seven children, who all attend school. She owns a house that neither has electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.

Umazi operates a firewood vending business, selling from home to her village. She faces a major challenge of high cost of transportation in her business. She dreams of expanding to increase her monthly income.

With the loan, she wants to purchase bundles of firewood for resale. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to improve her living standards.
