Dama T. D. is a divorced woman with five children, one girl and four boys. Three of her children attend school, while the last-born is still too young for school. She owns a house with no electricity or piped water and her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.

For the past ten years, Dama has sold fried fish to her neighbors, both door-to-door and also from home. She has no other source of income. Dama faces the major challenge of transportation and seasonality, moving from door-to-door during rainy seasons. She decided to work with Yehu because of its sustainable financial services to socio-economically marginalized rural entrepreneurs.

With this loan of 30,000 Kenyan shillings (Ksh), Dama wants to purchase fresh water fish and of 50kgs of cooking oil. In the future, she hopes to build a permanent fish shop.
