Mwanamaya is a single mother of three children, all of whom attend school. She owns a house that has electricity but not running water. Her greatest monthly expenses are school fees and household consumables.
For over twenty years, she has operated an open air food selling business, selling from home to her neighbors and passersby. She faces a major challenge of seasonality in her place of business.
With the 50,000 KES, she wants to purchase bundles of wheat flour, maize flour, tea leaves, and cooking fat. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
