Mbodze is a married woman; she has two kids, one of whom attends school. Mbodze owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is medical bills.
Mbodze has operated a motorcycle transport business from door-to-door where passersby and town dwellers are her potential customers. She has a challenge of seasonality, especially during the rainy season when it becomes difficult to operate the business.
With the Kshs 50,000 she wants to add to her savings and purchase a new motorcycle. Mbodze joined Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
