Nyamvula, aged 42 years, is married to Mwanyoha, who is a teacher. Together they have ten children, all under her care. They own a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.
Nyamvula has operated a vegetable and fruit-selling business for the past five years. Her major goal is to become a leading fruit-vending business in the area in order to raise her profits.
For that reason, she wants to use the Kshs (KES) 50,000 to purchase green vegetables and sacks of fruits, such as oranges, mangoes, watermelons and pawpaw. She decided to join Yehu to get financial support.
