Fatuma's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase potatoes, beans, and cooking oil for her café.
Fatuma is a married woman with two children, one of whom attends school. She lives in a rented house that has electricity but not piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food for the family. Fatuma has operated a café for the past four years, selling to town dwellers and passersby. She faces a challenge of seasonality in her business. Her dream is to establish a restaurant in the future. With the requested loan of KES 20,000, Fatuma wants to purchase potatoes, beans, and cooking oil for her café. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
