Umazi is a married woman without children. For years, she has operated a food stall business and sells items from home to her neighbors and passersby. Umazi’s major business challenge is price fluctuation. She lives in her own house without electricity or running water. Umazi decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.

Umazi is requesting a 20,000 KES loan to purchase three bundles of wheat flour, cooking fat, and sugar. In the future, she dreams of establishing a hotel.
