Chakure is a 29-year-old married woman who has three children. She lives in her own house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food for the family.
For the past ten years, she has operated an open air food stall business. Her potential customers are market dwellers and neighbors. She faces a major challenge of seasonality of products in the market.
With the KES 30,000 she wants to purchase sacks of beans, cooking oil, wheat flour, rice and furniture for the food stall. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
