Margaret and her husband have four children, all of whom attend school. They own a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Their greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.

For the past ten years, Margaret has operated a business selling coconuts wholesale to neighbors. Her major challenge is the high cost of transportation. She dreams of establishing a wholesale shop in the future.

Margaret decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business. With this Kshs 50,000 loan, she will purchase sacks of coconuts for resale.
