Rachel is married and has kids who attend school. She owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food for the family.
For the past three years, she has operated a motorcycle transport business door-to-door. In addition, she operates a poultry farming business, which earns her another source of income. She sells to restaurant operators and local neighbours. Her major challenge is the high cost of transportation to her place of operation.
With the KSH 50,000, she wants to add to her savings and purchase another motorcycle. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business and improve her living standards.
