Halima
Halima is a married woman with two children, both of whom attend school. She lives in a rental house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.

For the past two years, she has operated a food kiosk business, selling foodstuff like maize flour and cooking fat to her neighbours and passersby. She mentioned the high cost of seasonality as her major challenge, and she dreams of establishing a wholesale shop in the future.

With the 40,000 KES, she wants to purchase maize flour, rice, beans, sugar, and cooking oil. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
