Rukia's story

Rukia is a married woman with a son and a daughter. One of her children attends school and the other is disabled. Her husband is a police officer. She owns her house and has electricity but no piped water. Her greatest expenses are food and school fees.

Rukia sells bags and shoes as a hawker. With her Ksh 60,000 loan, she hopes to purchase more bags and shoes to sell. She has been in this business for the past three years and was previously a housewife. She sells her products door-to-door and her customers are usually middle-aged women. Her greatest challenge is that sometimes her customers purchase things on credit but don't pay her back.

Rukia aspires to have a shop someday with a lot of stock to sell. She wanted to work with Yehu because they understand her problems and help her.
