Agnes is a married woman with seven children, all of whom attend school. She owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.
For the past years, she has operated a soft drink-selling business, selling from home to her neighbors and passersby. She faces the challenges of seasonality and the high cost of transporting raw materials.
With the KES 50,000 loan, she wants to purchase sacks of coconuts, fruits, mangoes, and passion fruits. She decided to join Yehu Microfinance Trust to access loans, to boost her business.
