Mwanahamisi is a single woman and has been blessed with one child who attends school. She owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water.
For the past ten years, she has operated a food stall business, selling food stuff like wheat flour, maize flour, rice and cooking oil to local customers. She faces a major challenge of high cost of transportation in her place of operation.
With the KES 30,000 she wants to purchase bundles of wheat flour, beans, maize flour, and soft drinks. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
