Halima is married and has seven children. She owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is school fees for the family.
For the past five years, she has operated a fruit and coconuts selling business. She sells to her neighbours and passersby. Her major challenge is the high cost of transportation to her place of operation.
With the KES 20,000 she wants to purchase sacks of fruits and coconuts for resale. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business and improve her living standards.
