Mwanakombo is married with seven children who attend school. She owns a house that neither has electricity nor piped water.
Mwanakombo operates a cashew nut business, selling at the market to her neighbours and passersby. In addition, she also does a business selling cooked food. She faces a major challenge of seasonality in her business. Her dream is to establish a big restaurant in the near future.
With this KSH 40,000 loan, Mwanakombo wants to purchase seven sacks of cashew nuts for sale. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
