Florence is a married woman with four children, all of whom attend school. She lives at her own house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food for the family.
For the past fifteen years, she has operated a food stall business, selling from home to her neighbours and passersby. Her potential customers are neighbours and passersby. She faces a major challenge of seasonality in her business. Florence dreams of establishing a restaurant business in the future.
With the loan of Kes 40,000 that she is requesting, she wants to purchase stock of wheat flour, maize flour, and beans. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
