Nuru is widowed and blessed with five children. She owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees for her one school-going kid.
Nuru cooks food for sale at the market and sells to town dwellers and passersby. She cites price fluctuations as a challenge in the business. She dreams of establishing a café business in the future.
With this 35,000 Kenyan shilling loan, she wants to purchase food ingredients such as beans, rice, wheat flour, maize flour, sugar, and cooking oil for the business. She decided to join Yehu to access financial support to expand her business.
