Mwanamisi is a married mother of two children, both of whom go to school. They live in their own house that neither has electricity nor piped water.
For the past years, she has operated a cashew nut selling business, selling from home to her neighbors and passersby. She faces a major challenge of seasonality in her place of operation. Mwanamisi dreams of establishing a wholesale shop for selling the cashew nuts in the future.
With the KES 30,000 loan, she wants to purchase three sacks of cashew nuts to sell. She decided to join Yehu Microfinance Trust to access loans to boost her business.
