Kinyili is a hardworking woman who lives in the coastal region of Kenya.
For the past two years, she has sold women's wrap clothes (khangas), selling to her neighbours and passersby. She mentioned seasonality as her major challenge. She also weaves mats and baskets and sells them to town dwellers and passersby.
With the KES 50,000 loan, she wants to purchase bales of clothes for resale. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
