Hadija's story

Hadija is a married woman with six children: five boys and a girl. Two attend school while others are adults. She rents a house with electricity and piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food.

Hadija has been running her business of selling fruit and coconuts for the last fifteen years. She sells from home and at the market to her neighbors and passersby. She faces the major challenge of seasonality in her business.

With the Kshs 20,000 loan, Hadija wants to purchase more coconuts, bananas and mangoes. She hopes that someday she will open her own stall. Her main aim of working with Yehu is to access loans and expand her business.
