Umazi is a married woman with eight children, seven of whom attend school, and one is grown up. She lives in her own house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.
For the past 15 years, she has been selling goat meat at the market to the general public. The main challenge for her business has been unstable market prices.
She joined Yehu in order to gain access to funds. She is requesting a loan of 50,000 KES to purchase more goats for her business.
