Kavumbi
Kavumbi is a single woman with four children, all of whom attend school. She lives at a rental house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.

For the past four years, she has operated a food kiosk business, selling foodstuffs such as 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 50,000 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.
