Mwajuma, aged 32 years, is married to Chimera, and they have four children, all of whom attend school. She owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.
Mwajuma operates a retail shop business, selling household consumables like wheat flour, maize flour and sugar. She faces a challenge of lack of adequate capital to expand her business.
With the 15,000 Kenyan shillings, she wants to purchase bales of sugar, maize flour, soap detergents and wheat flour. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
