Mwanahamisi's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase bundles of wheat flour, maize flour, tea leaves, and cooking fat.
Mwanahamisi is a married mother of three children, all of whom attend school. She owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are school fees and household consumables. For over three years she has operated an open air food selling business, selling from home to her neighbours and passersby. She faces a major challenge of seasonality in her place of business. With the KES 50,000 she wants to purchase bundles of wheat flour, maize flour, tea leaves, and cooking fat. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
