Fatuma is married with three children, all of whom attend school. She lives in her own house that has electricity, but no piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food for her family.
For over ten years, Fatuma has operated an open food business, selling from her home to neighbors and passersby. Potential customers include neighbors and other members of her community. She faces the major challenge of seasonality in her business. Fatuma dreams of establishing a restaurant business in the future.
With the 50,000 KES loan she is requesting, Fatuma will purchase stocks of wheat flour, maize flour, and beans for her business.
Fatuma decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
