Mgeni is married and has one school-going child. She owns a house that has electricity and piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food for the family.
For the past five years, Mgeni has operated a poultry business. Selling to her neighbours and passersby, her major challenge is the high cost of transportation to her place of operation.
With this Ksh 45,000 loan, Mgeni will purchase chicks and chicken feeds. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business and improve her living standards.
