Nchombo is a single woman. She owns a house that has electricity but no piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees for her young siblings.
For the past two years, she has operated a business selling Khangas (cloth that women wrap themselves in). She has been selling from door-to-door to her neighbors and passersby. She faces a major challenge of seasonality in the sales of clothes.
With the KES 25,000 she wants to purchase bales of clothes for resale. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
