Fatuma's story

Fatuma is a married woman with nine children; two have completed school while the others still attend school. She has been operating her restaurant for over ten years, selling from home to her neighbours and passersby. In addition she does weaving, contributing another source of income.

With the Kshs 25,000 she wants to purchase wheat flour, maize flour, rice and sugar. Her major challenge in the business is seasonality especially during the months of August few customers turn up.

She hopes that someday she will be able to be self-reliant to satisfy her family's basic needs. She decided to join Yehu so as to get a loan to boost her family's income. She lives in a rental house with electricity and piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.
