Caroline's story

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

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

With the 10,000 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.
