Christine's story

Christine is a married woman with four children. Three already completed the high school level, while one still attends the school. She rents a house with electricity and piped water. She has been operating her cereals store for the past eight months and sells from home to her neighbors and passersby. With the loan she wants to purchase five bags of maize and five bags of beans. In addition she sells green vegetables as her other source of income.

Christine faces the major challenge of seasonality in her business. She hopes to build her own house in future to minimize cost of paying rent. Her main aim of working with Yehu is because of its sustainable financial services. She cites school fees and food as her greatest monthly expenses.
