Emily is married and has six school-going children. She owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food for the family.
For the past three years, she has operated a poultry selling business. She sells to her neighbours and passersby. Her major challenges are the high cost of transportation to her place of operation.
With the 30,000 Kenyan shillings, she wants to purchase chicks and chicken feed. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business and improve her living standards.
