Mwari
Mwari is a married woman with four children, all of whom attend school. She lives at her own house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.

For the past six years, she has operated a food kiosk business, selling foodstuffs such as maize flour, rice and cooking fat to her neighbors and passersby. Seasonality is her major challenge. She dreams of establishing a wholesale shop in the future.

With the 25,000 Kenyan shillings, she wants to purchase maize flour, rice, beans, sugar, and cooking oil. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
