Fatuma is a married mother and has four children in school. She lives in her own house, which has electricity but no piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are the school fees for her children.
For the past 11 years, Fatuma has operated a snack-selling business. She sells to her neighbors and passersby. Her major business challenge is stiff competition from other fruit sellers.
With the KES 20,000, Fatuma wants to purchase sacks of snacks to resell at a profit. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business and improve her living standards.
