Zena's story

Zena is a widowed woman with four children, between the ages of 24 and 35, and two grandchildren. Her greatest monthly expense is food. She used to sell potatoes along the roadside to passersby. With the 40,000 Kshs loan, she hopes to purchase a load of firewood. She has been in the firewood sale business for three years and supplies firewood at a wholesale price to small entrepreneurs. She also gets some support from her children. She decided to work with Yehu because she wanted to uplift her family life.
