Mwanasha is 29 years old and is married with six 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.
Mwanasha operates a grocery vegetables stall, where she sells at the market to town dwellers and neighbors. She faces the challenge of the high cost of transportation to her place of operation. She dreams of expanding and establishing a wholesale green grocery business in the future.
With the 20,000 KES she wants to buy various types of vegetables and fruits to sell. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
