Beatrice
Beatrice is a married woman staying together with her husband and three children. She owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.

For the past eight years, she has operated a charcoal selling business. She sells from home to her neighbours and passersby. She faces a major challenge of high cost of transportation. She dreams of expanding her business to a wholesale supplier of charcoal in the village.

With the 50,000 KES she wants to purchase sacks of charcoal for resale. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
