Asha's story

Asha is a married woman with five children, all of whom attend school. She lives in her own house that has no electricity or piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food for her family.

For the past three years, Asha has been operating a clothing business. She sells from her home to neighbors and passersby. The major challenge she faces in her business is dealing with competition. She dreams of converting her business into a boutique.

With the loan she is requesting, Asha wants to purchase clothes to sell. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
