Subira is a married mother of five children who attends school. She owns a house that has electricity and no piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is school fees.
For the past five years, she has operated a clothes selling business, selling at the market to her neighbours and passersby. She faces a major challenge of stiff competition in her business. She dreams of expanding and establishing a boutique business in the future.
With the loan that she is requesting of 50,000 Kenyan Shillings (KES) she wants to purchase bales of clothes for resale. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business and support her family.
