Mwanarusi's story

Mwanarusi 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 expense is food.

For over ten years, she has operated an open air food selling business, selling from home to her neighbors and passersby. She faces a major challenge of seasonality in her place of business.

With the loan, 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.
