Jane
Jane is a married mother of four children, all of whom attend school. She lives in a rental house that has electricity but not piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food for the family.

For more than nine years, she has operated a charcoal- and firewood-selling business, selling from home to her neighbors and passersby. Her major challenge is seasonality, especially during rainy season it becomes difficult to operate.

With the KES 50,000 loan, she wants to purchase 10 sacks of charcoal for resale. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
