Fatuma's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase food ingredients such as beans, rice, wheat flour, maize flour, sugar and cooking oil.
Fatuma is married and blessed with one child who attends school. She rents a house that has electricity but no piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees. She cooks food for sale at the market and sells to town dwellers and passersby. She cites food leftovers leading to losses, hence that is her major challenge in the business. She dreams of establishing a café business in the future. With the Kshs 10,000 she wants to purchase food ingredients such as beans, rice, wheat flour, maize flour, sugar and cooking oil. She decided to join Yehu to access financial support to expand her business.
