Mitingi is married and has 3 children all of whom go to school. They own a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food for the family and school fees.
For the past four years, she has operated a dried fish selling business, selling from home to her neighbours and passersby. She faces a major challenge of seasonality in her business. She dreams of becoming a major supplier of dried fish in the near future.
With the KES 50,000 she wants to purchase 4 sacks of dried fish. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
