Mary is a married mother of four children, three of whom go to school; one has finished. They live at their rental house that has electricity but no piped water.
For five years, Mary has operated a food stall business, selling from home to her neighbours and passersby. She faces a major challenge of price fluctuation in her business. She dreams of establishing a cafe in the future.
With the Kshs 50,000 she wants to purchase 6 bundles of wheat flour, cooking fat and sugar for preparation of food. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
