Jemima's story

Jemima is a married woman with five children who all attend school. She owns a house with no electricity but it does have piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food.

She has been operating her tailoring business for the last five years, selling at retail prices to her neighbors and passersby. She sells secondhand clothes as her other source of income. She faces the major challenge of seasonality in her business.

Jemima decided to work with Yehu so as to get financial assistance to boost her business. With the 30,000 KES loan she wants to purchase fabric, materials and Khangas (traditional African cotton cloth). Her major goal of working with Yehu is to operate as a wholesaler in the future.
