Bibi is a widowed woman who has been blessed with two children, who are now adults. She lives at her own house that is without electricity and piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food for the family.
Bibi has operated a charcoal business, selling from home to her neighbors and villagers. Her greatest monthly challenge is the high cost of transportation. She also operates a mobile charging business.
She is requesting a loan of KES 50,000 to purchase more charcoal and mobile chargers for her business. She joined Yehu to get financial support.
