Mariam
Mariam is married, with three children, all of whom attend school. She owns a house that neither has electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.

For the past three years, she has operated a business of selling leso (women's wrap) cloth. She faces a major challenge of seasonality in her place of operation. She dreams of expanding to become a big supplier of clothes in the future. She also operates a food business, preparing food and selling it to her neighbors.

With the KES 50,000 she wants to purchase bales of leso cloth for resale. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
