Ega is a married woman with five kids, all of whom attend school. She owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food for the family and school fees.
Ega operates a goat meat selling business. She sells at the market to town dwellers and neighbors. She faces a challenge of the high cost of transportation to her place of operation. She dreams of expanding and establishing a butchery business in the future.
With the 30,000 Kenyan shillings, she wants to pay school fees and buy goats for resale. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
