Margaret is a married mother of four children, all of whom attend school. She lives in a rental house that has electricity and piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is school fees.
For the past three years, Margaret has operated a business, selling clothes and shoes at the market to her neighbours and passersby. She faces the major challenge of stiff competition in her business. She dreams of expanding and establishing a boutique business in the future.
With the loan of Kes 20,000 that she is requesting, Margaret wants to purchase bales of clothes and shoes to sell. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
