Bibi is the married mother of two children, who are still young. She lives in her own house that has no electricity and piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food for the family.
For the past three years, she has operated a cereal-selling business, selling at the market to her neighbors and passersby. She faces a major challenge of stiff competition in her business. She dreams of expanding and establishing a shop business in the future.
With the loan that she is requesting of KES 50,000, she wants to purchase maize, wheat, rice, and sorghum for resale. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
