Fatuma is married and has seven children, all of whom attend school. For the past year, she has operated an open-air food business, selling from her home to neighbors and passersby. Fatuma's major business challenge is seasonality. She owns a house without electricity or running water and her greatest monthly expenses are school fees and household consumables. Fatuma decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
Fatuma is requesting a 20,000 KES loan to purchase bundles of wheat flour, maize flour, rice, sugar, and cooking fat for her business.
