Tabu's story

Tabu is a married woman with four children: three girls who are ages 8, 5 and 3, and a boy who is 22 years old. The boy attends college while the other children are still in their lower classes.

Tabu has been operating her vegetable stall for the past eight years, selling vegetables to her neighbors and passersby. With the Kshs 40,000, she wants to pay college fees for her son, and purchase sacks of potatoes and a sack of coconuts.

Tabu faces the major challenge of high transportation costs, theft, and seasonality in her business. She hopes to open a retail shop in future. Her major aim of working with Yehu is because of its availability of sustainable financial services to small scale entrepreneurs. She owns a home with no electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is transportation.
