Mwanasiti is 29 years old, married, and has four school-going children. She owns a house that has electricity but not piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.
She operates a food stall business from her home, selling household consumables such as wheat flour, maize flour, and sugar to her neighbors and passersby. She faces stiff competition in her business. Her dream is to establish a wholesale business in the near future.
With the KES 50,000 loan she wants to purchase stock of wheat flour, maize flour, sugar, and rice. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
