Janet is a married woman with two school-going children. She lives in a rental house that has electricity but not piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food for the family.
For the past three years, she has operated a food stall business, selling at the market to her neighbors and passersby. She faces a major challenge of seasonality in her place of operation. Janet dreams of expanding her business to earn more profits in the future.
With the KSHS 10,000, she wants to purchase sacks of beans, wheat flour, maize flour, cooking fat oil and sugar. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
