Leah is married and has been blessed with two children, both of whom attend school. She lives in a house she owns that has electricity and piped-in water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees. For the last eight years, she has earned a living by selling fish. One of her biggest challenges is the seasonal nature of her business, and she dreams of becoming a wholesaler of fish in coming years, and also opening a tailoring business. She is requesting a loan for Kshs 100,000 to buy fish to resell and to buy clothing materials for her tailoring business. She joined Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
