Bendera, 25 years old, is a married woman, with six children, all of whom attend school. She owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food for the family.
For the past five years, Bendera has operated a local brew-selling business. She sells at the market to her neighbors and passersby. Her major challenge in the business is the high cost of transportation.
With the loan of KES 20,000 that she is requesting, she wants to purchase more local brew for resale. She decided to join Yehu Microfinance Trust to access loans to boost her business.
