Nyamvula is married, and the mother of four children. She owns a house that has electricity, but not piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is school fees for her children.
For the past ten years, she has operated a business selling cereals and beans. She sells to her neighbours and passersby. Her major challenge is stiff competition from other cereals sellers.
With the KES 20,000 loan, she wants to purchase dried maize, beans, rice and wheat, which she will resell at a profit. She decided to join Yehu to access loans, to boost her business and improve her living standard.
