Khadija is a married woman with three children of school age. She lives in a rental house that has electricity, but not piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food for her family.
Khadija sells snacks from her home to the general public. She faces a major challenge of seasonality in her business, and the lack of enough capital for the continuity of the business.
With the 20,000 Kenyan Shilling loan she has asked for, Khadija wants to buy ingredients including wheat flour, cooking oil and sugar for her business. She decided to join Yehu to get financial assistance to improve her business.
