Zawadi'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 clothes for resale.
Zawadi is a widowed mother of six children, all of whom attend school. She lives at her own house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food. For the past ten years, she has operated a clothes-selling business, selling from door to door to her neighbours and passersby. She faces a major challenge in the high cost of transportation. With the loan that she is requesting of KES 50,000, she wants to purchase bales of clothes for resale. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
