Mwanaidi's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase bales of khangas for resale.

Mwanaidi's story

Mwanaidi is married with three school-going children. They live at a rental house that has electricity but no piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.

She has operated a khanga (women wrap cloth) selling business, selling from home and door to door to her neighbours and passersby. She faces a major challenge of lack of capital to expand her business.

With the loan she is requesting, she wants to purchase bales of khangas for resale. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
