Halima is married, with one child who goes to school. She lives in her own house that has neither electricity, nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food for the family.
Halima has operated a shoe-selling business for the past five years. In addition to the shoe business, she sells clothes. She cites seasonality as her major business challenge.
With the KES 30,000 loan, Halima wants to purchase sacks of shoes for resale. She decided to join Yehu Microfinance Trust to get financial support.
