Mwanapwani's story

Mwanapwani is a married woman and has one child who is in school. She lives in her own house that has electricity, but no piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is school fees.

Mwanapwani has a retail shop business that she has been managing for one year. She sells household consumables such as wheat flour, maize flour, and sugar. The major challenge she faces is the seasonality of her business.

She is requesting this loan in order to purchase more inventory of sugar, rice, maize flour, and wheat flour. Mwanapwani joined Yehu so that she could access loans to boost her business.
