Mupa, aged 32 years, is a married woman with four kids, all of whom attend school. She owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food for the family and school fees.
She operates a grocery, a vegetable-selling stall, where she sells at the market to town dwellers and neighbors. She faces a challenge of high cost of transportation to her place of operation. She dreams of expanding and establishing a wholesale business in the future.
With the Kshs 40,000 she wants to buy fruit and various kinds of vegetables for sale. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
