Halima is a widowed mother of 10 children who are now adults. She lives at her own house that has electricity but not piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and electricity bills.
For the past 10 years, she has operated a business renting utensils like plates, spoons and ovens to her customers during weddings and other occasions. She faces a major challenge of the high cost of transportation. She dreams of expanding and establishing a shop for the business in the future.
With the loan that she is requesting for KSHS 20,000, she wants to purchase more utensils to rent. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
