Floriana is a married woman with three children, all of whom attend school. She lives at a rental house that has electricity but no piped water.
Floriana operates a charcoal-selling business, selling at the market to her neighbors and town dwellers. She faces a major challenge of high cost of obtaining a license for the business. Floriana dreams of expanding her business to wholesale in the future.
With the KES 40,000, she wants to purchase 30 bags of charcoal for resale. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to invest in her business.
