Fatuma
Fatuma is married and has five children, all in school. She owns a house that has no electricity or piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.

She has operated a fish selling business at the market for the past two years, selling to her town dwellers and neighbors. She faces the major challenge of the high cost of purchasing fish, especially during cold currents in the deep sea.

She is requesting a loan to purchase bundles of fish, cooking oil and firewood. She decided to join Yehu to access loans at a lower cost to improve her business.
