Neema is a married woman with three children, all of whom still attend school and under her care. They live at a rental house that has electricity but not piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees for the children.
She has been operating a vegetable selling business, which she sells at the market and to her town dwellers and neighbors. She cites her major challenge to be seasonality, and she dreams of establishing a boutique business in the future.
With the loan she is requesting, she wants to purchase two kales, cabbages, onions, and row maize for resale. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
