Salima is a married woman with four children. She lives at her own house that has electricity and no piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food for the family.
For the past three years, she has operated a food kiosk business selling food stuff of maize flour, and cooking fat to her neighbors and passersby. She mentioned the high cost of seasonality as her major challenge and she dreams of establishing a wholesale shop in the future.
With the Kshs 30,000, she wants to purchase maize flour, rice, beans, sugar, and cooking oil. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
