Dzame, a divorced mother of three children, two of whom attend school while one is yet too young, owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are school fees and food for the family.
For the past two years, Dzame has operated a food kiosk, selling to her neighbours and passersby. Price fluctuation is her major challenge, and she dreams of establishing a wholesale shop in the future.
With this Kshs 10,000 loan, Dzame wants to purchase salt, bread, milk, soft drinks, rice, sugar, beans and sweets for resale. She decided to join Yehu to get financial support.
