Kanga is a married woman with six children, all of whom attend school. She lives at her own house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are household consumables and school fees.
For the past one year, Kanga has operated a clothes selling business, selling from door-to-door to her neighbors and passersby. She faces a major challenge of high cost of transportation. She dreams of expanding and establishing a boutique business in the future.
With the loan that she is requesting, Kanga wants to purchase bales of clothes for resale. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
