Gladys
Gladys is a single mother of four children, all of whom attend school. She lives at a rental house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.

Gladys operates a charcoal-selling business, selling from home to her villagers. She faces a major challenge of seasonality in her business. She dreams of expanding to increase her monthly income.

With the loan of Kes 30,000, she wants to purchase 25 sacks of charcoal for resale and pay for transport. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to improve her living standards.
