Mejumaa's story

Mejumaa is a married woman with three children who go to school. She owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.

Mejumaa operates a food making business, making comestibles like beans and chapati (flat bread) for sale to passersby and neighbours.

With the KES 40,000 she wants to purchase food items, such as wheat flour, cooking oil, sugar and beans. She dreams of expanding her business to earn more income and establish a restaurant in the near future.
