Dorothy
Dorothy is a married woman but has no children. She lives in a rental house that neither has electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food for the family.

For the past two years, she has operated a cereal shop business, selling from home to her neighbors and passersby. Her potential customers are neighbors and passersby. She faces a major challenge of seasonality in her business. Dorothy dreams of establishing a wholesale cereal shop business in the future.

With the loan that she is requesting of 60,000 KES, she wants to purchase inventory of wheat flour, maize flour, and beans. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
