Rukia
Rukia is a married woman who is very hard-working and enterprising. She lives in her own house that neither has electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food.

For the past two years, she has operated a retail shop and a green-grocery business, selling to her neighbours and passersby. She mentioned seasonality as her major challenge. Rukia dreams of establishing a wholesale shop in the future.

With the KES 40,000 she wants to purchase soap, wheat flour, bread, milk, soft drinks, rice, beans and cooking oil. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
