Hadija is married with seven school going children. She owns a house that neither has electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.
Hadija has operated a fish selling business at the market for the past five years, selling to town dwellers and neighbors. She faces a major challenge in high cost of purchasing fish, especially during periods of cold currents in the deep sea.
Hadija is requesting for a loan to purchase bundles of fish, cooking oil and firewood. She decided to join Yehu to access loans at a lower cost to improve her business.
